Music has always been part of the festival and this year, the festival starts on Friday afternoon with music and entertainment. This year, musicians from Canada, the Faroe Islands and locally from Greenland have been invited, so there is something to look forward to.
It has always been important for Katuaq as organizers that participating families may have the opportunity to experience something together as a family, so we again offer family workshops during the festival. These will take place on Saturday, August 11th. The program is still under preparation and will be posted on Katuaq's website, Qooqqut Festivals Facebook page and Katuaq's Facebook page. Again, this year we are thinking of families with children of all ages.
Transport and countertops
This year, Katuaq does not collaborate with Arctic Umiaq Line as the festival has moved into high season, so participants can look forward to a warmer period in Qooqqut. This also means that guests who attend and attend the festival themselves must arrange for transport to Qooqqut.
There are tent sites in Qooqqut, which we refer to, for guests who wish to stay in tents during their stay. If you need help locating the seats, please contact staff who have yellow vests on arrival.
