“Iceland on the Edge” in Brussels

By Iceland Review

Icelandic musicians Múm, Kira Kira, Skakkamanage and Parachutes, will perform as representatives of the Iceland Airwaves music festival during the “Iceland on the Edge” cultural and promotional events in Brussels, which formally begin February 26.

The concert is scheduled for March 8 in concert venue Ancienne Belgique.

“Iceland on the Edge” is the largest culture and promotion festival for Iceland held in a foreign country in 2008. Its program extends into mid-June and includes, on the one hand, events related to Icelandic culture and art (in cooperation with Belgian culture and art center Bozar), and on the other, events related to tourism and energy.

The festival’s goal is to promote Icelandic art and strengthen the image of Iceland internationally. Highlights of the festivals include, apart from the concert on March 8, the staging of Ibsen’s Peer Gynt by Iceland’s National Theater, performances by the Iceland Dance Company and a literature night dedicated to Nobel laureate Halldór Laxness.

The Icelandic government, Reykjavík City, the Icelandic Tourist Board and the Trade Council of Iceland are involved in the project, which is sponsored by Landsbanki Bank, Icelandair and Icelandair Cargo.
