The Longest Johns to play the G! Festival

Drunken Sailor, Wellerman, Santiana, and Bones in the Ocean will fill the Bay of Gøta, when The Longest Johns go on stage a bright summer evening at the G! Festival 2024.

Drunken Sailor, Wellerman, Santiana, and Bones in the Ocean will fill the Bay of Gøta, when The Longest Johns go on stage a bright summer evening at the G! Festival 2024. 

For the third consecutive Wednesday, G! Festival announces a big international name for next year’s festival. This time it's The Longest Johns from Bristol, England. 

It's hard to imagine something more cheerful than standing on the beach in Syðrugøta, singing along with sea shanties in the salty ocean breeze. 

Ever since they started playing over 10 years ago, The Longest Johns have been driven by a pure love for sea shanties. When their recording of the old shanty "Wellerman" gained popularity, everyone suddenly started talking about sea shanties. 

This sparked a trend and launched the careers of many since that. 

The Longest Johns have over the years released several old sea shanties as well as their own compositions. A new release from them is expected in the spring of 2024. 

They sing and play instruments such as the harmonium, guitar, and mandolin. Sometimes, they dive into pure a capella singing. It's warm, intimate, and honest – with a hint of pirate.  

We look forward to singing along with them and our friends on the beach on a summer evening in July 2024! 

Do check them out and listen to their performance of the song “Santiana” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeSaMR1-vTw&source_ve_path=MTc4NDI0
