Summarfestival is held in August every year
surrounded by high mountains the city of Klaksvik is the perfect place to host the Summarfestival
The Summarfestival was first time held in 2004. 3000 people attended with a handful of international bands. Today the Summarfestival is one of the two biggest music events in FaroeIslands. And attracts triple amount of crowds with big international bands.
In 2004 Ken Hensley from Uriah Heep entertained and thrilled the crowds. Among the local bands attending, was Frændur. Steintór Rasmussen has been in the group from the beginning and he is also the main organizer of the Summarfestival.
The following years included many international names and the crowd attending the Summarfestival grew larger. Shakin’ Stevens, Týr, Anne Linnet, The Scorpions, Smokie, ABBA the Show, Shu-bi-dua, Westlife, Rasmus Seebach, Ronan Keating are all names that have been at the Summarfestival in years gone. Success after success the management for Summarfestival earn all praise for great planning, vision and persistance in doing a great work year after year.
The unique and unspoiled nature of the Faroe Islands is the reason why the widely renowned National Geographic Traveller in the November/ December issue of 2007 hailed these northern islands the most appealing islands in the world to visit.
Embedded in the midst of the serenely natural rather than the urban, the Summerfestival makes for a unique experience for both performer and audience. The Summerfestival will continue the tradition in 2013, creating a fantastic international music festival in the middle of the North Atlantic. Two hour flights from Denmark, Scotland, England, Iceland, Norway and Sweden make the trip to the Faroe Islands comfortable and easy.
Among the international bands attending the 2013 Summarfestival is Mika and Kim Larsen.
