2021 G! Festival

Syðrugøta faroe islands g! festival beach

Syðrugøta (Faroe Islands) on July 16, 2021

The one festival that wasn’t supposed to be canceled this summer was the G! Festival in the Faroe Islands. Well, this is what the festival looked like on what was to be day two. Very peaceful. As if nothing was supposed to happen here.

The festival was canceled less than a week before due to Covid fears. The country was approaching a 7-day average of new cases that may have hit (are you ready for this?) double digits. That’s right the average had gone up to 7 new cases a day when they said this outdoor festival couldn’t happen. A ridiculous reason to cancel an outdoor event in my opinion, especially since most of the country is vaccinated, vaccination or a negative test was required for entry, and there has been a grand total of one, yes only one, death due to Covid in the Faroe Islands in the past year and a half. Meanwhile, instead of going to the festival, you could walk into a small, indoor bar (without any checking of vaccine status or a recent negative Covid test result) on the Faroe Islands and drink right next to 10 or 20 other people for hours before watching live music that went on indoors from midnight until 4 a.m.!

Anyway, I’m sorry the festival didn’t happen, but I’m really glad I got to visit the Faroe Islands.
