In connection with the annual West Nordic Day a free cafe concert is organized with the popular folksinger Ólavur Højgaard, who is best known from the band Vestmenn, which since 1982 has been one of the most popular folk/rock bands in the Faroe Islands, with countless big hits. On stage is Ólavur Højgaard Niels Olsen, who is also known from Vestmenn and Holgar Jacobsen, who has been on the Faroese music scene since sometime in the 80s. Holgar also plays with the popular group Tinganes from Sørvágur.
The West Nordic Day
The West Nordic Day is held on September 23rd every year to increase the cooperation and strengthen the sense of closeness between the three neighboring countries, The Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland. The winter equinox was chosen as the date for the marking of the West Nordic history and culture in the West Nordic countries. The agreement on this West Nordic cultural cooperation is managed by the cultural ministries in the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland. Today the West Nordic Day is celebrated in all three countries simultaneously.
