TOP FESTIVALS IN ICELAND

Iceland produces a vast amount of artists, some of them known internationally such as Björk, Múm, Sigur Rós, Ólafur Arnalds, Gus Gus, Emiliana Torrini and Of Monsters and Men.

This also results in some phenomenal music festivals, the three largest ones being Iceland Airwaves (in November), Secret Solstice (in June) and Sónar Reykjavík (in February).

Smaller music festivals tend to take place in the countryside and include the heavy metal/hard rock festival Eistnaflug in Neskaupsstaður in July, the rock festival Aldrei fór ég suður in Ísafjörður during Easter and international Bræðslan music festival in Borgarfjörður Eystri in July.
