The career of many European music acts starts in Groningen. The Eurosonic Noorderslag festival is the place to discover artists. It’s the biggest showcase festival in Europe and offers a stage to European artists in four days. Eurosonic Noorderslag, where the country of Iceland was in the spotlight in 2015, also presented the band Vök. Four years after their debut concert in the Netherlands, the band plays a sold-out Rotown show with 250 visitors, after a full concert in WORM two years ago.
Iceland is almost three times the size of the Netherlands but has only 320.000 inhabitants. The land of troubled volcanoes and where ninety days a year the days are almost entirely dark. The temperature in Iceland is cold, but it has a warm pop climate that is felt far beyond the island. The band Vök also makes this typical Icelandic music sound. The band mixes melancholic electronics and melodic vocals with saxophone and guitar.
