In early November every year, the Iceland Airwaves festival (the best music festival on the planet, methinks!) takes place in Reykjavík. While listening to a Spotify playlist introducing a bunch of the 2016 artists I heard a voice and song that really spoke to me, and thought to myself; How cool wouldn’t it be if he’d do Eurovision/Söngvakeppnin?!

Without further ado; I give you Helgi Valur!

(Oh, and you can listen to the the song I heard in the video!)

And at the end of the interview Helgi Valur played us a song, and we got to decide which!


Don’t miss the next Söngvakeppnin interview; with the wonderful Elísabet Ormslev!


I'm Norwegian, presently living in Iceland. My mom loves Eurovision, and always let me stay up to watch the contest since before I can remember, so I'm "second generation Eurovision lunatic". My musical god is David Bowie, so I'm obviously not into the stereotypical Eurovision songs. I prefer the rocky/bluesy/jazzy/ethnic songs over schlager and mainstream ballads, though I occasionally surprise myself (and others)... I HATE canned drums and "Cvet Z juga". Photo © Tobias König
