Midgardsblot 2019 – HEILUNG

As a completely unknown band Heilung headlined Midgardsblot in 2017, and Metal Hammer UK named the bands concert at our festival as one of the top ten concerts in Europe 2017. Since then, the band has been the talk of music-Europe, and has been booked by all major festivals. But seeing them at Midgardsblot, with the festivals intimate and powerful historical setting, this becomes something very special. An entire audience wondered what had really happened after the concert last year. Next year you can experience it yourself.

Heilung plugs an amplifier in our history and makes it vibrant, relevant and infinitely beautiful. If there is ONE thing you should do for next year, it is to secure a ticket to Heilung at Midgardsblot 2019!
