“Geit Pride 2011” Coming Up in Reykjavík

A concert series entitled “Geit Pride 2011” in support of the Icelandic Goat Center, which is under construction, and the Icelandic Settlement Goat, which is at a risk of extinction, will take place at Café Rósenberg in central Reykjavík on December 22 at 9 pm.

“This is not a joke. Artists care about a number of issues and the wellbeing of animals and the preservation of the country’s animal stocks is no less significant than many others,” the event’s Facebook site reads.

Geit is the Icelandic word for “goat” and is pronounced “gay-t”, hence “Gay-t Pride” in reference to another more extravagant festival.

Performers include Svavar Knútur, Halla Norðfjörð, Kristjana Stefáns, Myrra Rós, Anna Jónsdóttir, Skúli mennski Þórðarson and Hjörtur Hjalti Þorkelsson, and others are expected to join them.

Tickets cost ISK 2,000 (USD 16, EUR 12) and all are welcome.
