Nordic Music Days 2021

The whole of Tórshavn will be buzzing with new Nordic music when Nordic Music Days is held for the first time ever in the Faroe Islands 1st to 4th of September 2021. 

Under the main theme “Roots”, the vision is to create strong and present experiences for all. Through meetings between audiences and different concert formats, the aim is to provide a breeding ground for the Faroe Islands’ unique musical traditions and the participating artists’ own deep roots to nurture each other.
