‘Greenland Sessions’

A special set of Arctic concerts.

We are very excited to stage the annual Ice Music Festival with a set of outdoor concerts and art installations combined with a science camp in Ilulissat on the 9th and 10th of March 2024. When the first ice note is played, the sound emitted will mark our 19th year of merging music, art and climate science beautifully.

Taking place in addition to the annual Ice Music Festival in Norway, the Greenland Sessions, will be performed with a view of the stunning UNESCO world heritage site, Ilulissat Icefjord, on the west coast of Greenland.

The Greenland Sessions will be hosted on the terrace of the beautifully designed Icefjord Centre in the town of Ilulissat (see photographs below). The centre provides a perfect backdrop for the Ice Music Festival to collaborate with talented Greenlandic artists.

Greenland is experiencing the effects of climate change at a faster rate than most of the world, so weaving the magic of Ice Music into the local Avannaata community’s lived experience, will make an important statement about life surrounded by earth’s most precious resource – water.
