Now We're Really Rolling

This year's festival is really getting off the ground with the first major performance, by dub-group Zion Train.

The sun is shining brightly, and the festival guests are in an excellent mood as the dub-group Zion Train takes the stage and really sets things off in the year's first big performance.

The weather was so mild, one could almost imagine that the concert was taking place on a beach somewhere off in the distant Mediterranean.

Zion Train, who took a fast sailing tour early in the day, are themselves completely overwhelmed by the beautiful Faroe Islands.

"I can't believe how beautiful this country is. I feel like moving here," says the singer again and again.

Zion Train will go out with a bang, followed on the beach stage this evening by Phlake and SBCR aka The Bloody Beetroots.
