The famed Westfjords music festival Aldrei fór ég suður will be held again this year, under the auspices of a special occasion.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the festival, which was first held over Easter weekend in Ísafjörður in 2004. At that time, Iceland’s indie scene was booming, but most of the activity was centered in Reykjavík. The musician Mugison, who grew up in Ísafjörður, and his father came up with the idea of holding a music festival in the Westfjords in 2003.

Since its inception, the festival has always been free of charge.

This year’s line-up includes an eclectic mix of artists, some of whom are Icelandic classics, while others have achieved more recent fame. The full line-up is available here.

Performances will be held March 29th and 30th at Suðurgata 11 in Ísafjörður, with doors opening at 19:00 on both days.
