HEILUNG
Ritual Collective Return

with Special Guest Eivør

HEILUNG, the ground-breaking collective renowned for their captivating performances, announce their highly anticipated rituals across Australia and New Zealand. This marks the debut of their mesmerizing rituals in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Auckland and their return to Sydney and Melbourne.

Since its inception in 2015, the enigmatic ritual collective has been paving melodic paths to the past with their unique and mystifying sound.

HEILUNG’S rituals are captivating and enthralling, with their unique fusion of ancient traditions and modern innovation, transporting audiences into a realm of primal energy and mysticism, invoking the spirits of ancestors through haunting vocals and featuring authentic traditional instrumentation that ranges from rattles and ritual bells to human bones and throat singing.

These rituals will be an opportunity for fans to immerse themselves in the rich tapestry of Nordic culture and witness firsthand the power of HEILUNG.

Joining HEILUNG will be special guest EIVØR. Hailing from the tiny village of Syðrugøta on the Faroe Islands and with ten studio albums under her belt, as well as numerous collaborations with artists including Àsgeir, John Grant, Einar Selvik (Wardruna) and Dan Heath (Lana Del Ray), Eivør is considered to be one of the most eclectic artists of the Nordics and a mesmerising live vocalist.

Eivør’s music has been streamed close to 1 billion times with soundtracks and features on all seasons of the flagship Netflix hit series, The Last Kingdom.
