Greenland’s National Day is the day of summer solstice, when our daylight is at its longest. The midnight sun barely hits the horisont before it turns upwards again.

The 4th of June there was a live online concert streamed simultaneously from Nuuk (Greenland), Reykjavík (Iceland) and Tórshavn (Faroe Islands).
