Fimbulvetr: Solstice // Livestream 21/12/21

DJ Vilkas,

Shadowplay Edinburgh


Fimbulvetr: Solstice

A livestream continuing the Edinburgh Fimbulvetr legacy…

When DJ Vilkas, Shadowplay, took over promotion and DJing of Fimbulvetr in 2019 – continuing the ethos and musicality of the original live event, who could have known that the COVID-19 pandemic would force this format onto the livestream platform, where it has found a temporary home.

So join DJ Vilkas to celebrate the depth of winter in the shortest solar day; harkening back to a time when the world was learning to embrace a wider humanity – when different cultures would ultimately converge to share values of tradition, worshipping the earth, and the cycle of nature.

DJ Vilkas will stream some neofolk-themed music, with a touch of modern dark folk, ethereal and atmospheric, with a touch of the misanthropic sounds of black metal, to embrace the night at its greatest strength.All while sipping some fine spirits and engaging in philosophical discussion. Open to requests and suggestions of direction.
