Heathen Gigs 2018

The year has barely begun and yet you’ve already missed a couple of awesome gigs? Well, weep no more, for I present you the Heathen Gig Calendar for (1)2018. Listed are various artists of different genres whose music is inspired by heathen (i.e. Germanic) traditions and aesthetics. The list is still small, but I will try to extend it and keep it up to date. For the overview and a rough orientation, there is also a description of the genre, which should be self-explanatory. Under “Ritual” I have summarized bands like Wardruna or Heilung, whose music is a new style of its own. However, too much emphasis should not be placed on the genres, since the boundaries are of course fluid, which is reflected very well in the Nordvegen project.
