With 5000 souls, Klaksvík is the second biggest settlement on the Faroes. They had a summer festival when I was there. To me it looked like a typical small-town arrangements with some tents and scenes. But they wanted 600 FOK (about €90) for an entrance ticket! Later I learnt that they had among other artists, Scorpions and Kim Wilde. 600 FOK is still a hefty fee. No, I did not enter.

The festival had to close down prematurely, by the way, the next day due to bad weather. This evening, it had stopped raining, but the strong winds the next day put safety at stake.
