The festival has grown steadily in the past years and has become one of the most important aspects of the West Fjords’ cultural life, report.

A variety of old and new bands and soloists are scheduled to perform, including the festival’s founder Mugison, metal rockers Skálmöld, Icelandic punk legends HAM, up-and-coming Retro Stefson, troubadour Svavar Knútur, Faroese Guðrið Hansdóttir and eighties girl rock band Dúkkulísur.
