Young Faroese face a difficult decision early on. Should they should stay and build a life in the Faroes, or travel away and maybe return later to start a family. They’re used to this though, like their parents before them.

Every year young people in the Faroe Islands save all their money and head to the G festival in Gøta. The festival is in a fjord and the bands play on the beach.

Gøta was the home of the red haired Viking warrior Tróndur í Gøtu (born 945). He is described in the sagas as leading the opposition to the arrival of Christianity in the Faroe Islands and his statue stands in the village were the kids go to rock.
