Daði Freyr, together with Icelandic broadcaster RÚV, has confirmed that he’ll be returning with his group Gagnamagnið to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2021.
An artist who obsesses over the intricate craft of the pop song, Daði is a student of Eurovision. He will perform together with the group Gagnamagnið – which translates as ‘data plan’. In February 2020, Daði Freyr and Gagnamagnið won the Icelandic national selection Söngvakeppnin. They were set to perform their song Think About Things at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2020. It is not yet sure what Daði's new song for the Contest in 2021 will be about, but the family aspect will stay with him as his wife, Árný Fjóla Ásmundsdóttir, plays keyboard in the group Gagnamagnið, and his 2 sisters provide backing vocals.
Daði Freyr can’t wait to perform on the Eurovision stage: "I am very excited. The reason why I competed in Söngvakeppnin 2020 was to try to experience Eurovision from the inside together with Gagnamagnið. We always wanted to find out how far we could get in the competition and that will be no different next year."
