One of Iceland’s most recognised bands, Sigur Rós have been touring heavily around Europe, and are now warming up for a big tour around the US and Canada. Luckily, they are paying the UK a visit before heading off to America, so it’ll be possible to experience the band’s incredibly visual stage appearance in Edinburgh on the 15th and 16th August! If you haven’t yet seen the guys perform, then check out their upcoming live dates here!


15th-22nd August – Daniel Norgren, Green Man, GlasgowLeeds, BrightonRamsgate & Glasgow

The incredibly talented Swedish singer/songwriter Daniel Norgren is on a little UK tour this week. He is quite an unusual performer, as he plays both the guitar and drums on stage – it’s an all-encapsulating experience, as his stunning voice leads the way. Lucky crowds up and down the country will have the chance to catch Daniel live over the coming week, so we highly recommend that you do just that!
