As ever, the festival line up boasts a phenomenal mix of international and Icelandic talent, with a whole new batch of artists revealed today – and we think it’s safe to say that the festival have smashed the ball out of the park this year. Among the new additions to the 90-artist-strong line up are KAMARA, Axel Flóvent, Aron Can and Laufey as well as international names such as Arlo Parks, Wu-Lu, Smoothboi Ezra and many more!
The festival has every intention of running its activities in person, in venues, on the 3-6 November 2021 and we can’t think of a better way to return to live festival life than making our way to Iceland for this sensational event! We’ve whole-heartedly missed the days of wandering around Reykjavík city centre, stumbling upon our new favourite bands in the glorious venues dotted around town – so we’ll be counting down to November, and we hope to see you there!
