Dagny Norvol Sandvikfrom Tromsø - a songbird from the North.
1 Have you been to Belladrum before?
Dagny: This is my first time at Belladrum and I’m very excited! My first performance that I can think of was at a festival in Tromsø (Norway) called Døgnvillfestivalen. I played synth and backing vocals for an electronica band called F.A.C.E. I was terrified and it was so much fun!
2 Name your three fave acts seen there and maybe a two-word wee description/ haiku-ette of their performance and why it was so good?
Dagny: At Døgnvillfestivalen I was so nervous and focused on my own guest performance that I think I missed out on the rest of the line-up! Now I make lists of bands I wanna see at festivals, I won’t miss out on a whole line-up ever again!
3 What is your favourite festival moment ever ie funniest, saddest camping moment, most romantic encounter most life-changing music moment etc etc worst weather most surreal
Dagny: Because it’s still so fresh in mind and my first English festival experience I’m gonna go with the Isle of Wight Festival this year. I got to play two gigs, I had all my best friends with me, sunny weather and general good times! It was also my first festival in a tent ever. SO many good moments!
4 What one thing would you tell people to take to Belladrum?
Dagny:You’re going to a festival! Leave your phone at home and bring a disposable camera.
5 If the schedule allows (ie you aren’t playing at the same time) will you be going to see Tom Jones if you are there on the Friday – and if you could request one song from him, what would it be and why!?
Dagny: I’m not there unfortunately! Though we’re going to try so hard to come up early and see him. It would be great to just hear all of classics. There’s so many!
