After a well deserved summer break, our Nordic Gig Guide is back in full swing, and we’ve got a live music loaded week ahead! Read on to find out which incredible Nordic talents will be playing around the UK this week!
15th-16th August – Sigur Rós, Edinburgh Playhouse, Edinburgh
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, Glasgow, Leeds, Brighton, Ramsgate & 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!

The Americana inspired guys in the Danish/Australian duo Palace Winter have just announced that they will be the support act on Noel Gallagher‘s High Flying Birds tour in Denmark, and straight after that, they’ll be returning to the UK to play what is sure to be a highlight show of their summer tour, Green Man Festival in Wales!
Wednesday 17th – KRÍA, The Good Ship, Kilburn
KRÍA are a three-piece collective from Iceland, who produce dreamy electronic pop with inspiration taken from supernatural happenings. They are now playing in Kilburn, which is their last European concert before heading on a tour of Singapore. Check them out at The Good Ship this Wednesday!
