All Rocked Out!

The town doubled in size during the festivalThe population  of Isafjordur is a modest 2.600 people but that is doubled when revellers flock to Isafjordur when this uniquely Icelandic festival takes place.

The town doubles in size during the festival when revellers flock to Ísafjörður for this uniquely Icelandic festival. The 2013 featured a line-up of 26 bands and artists and takes place in an large garage just outside town. There are no sound checks between bands that play 20 minute sets on a stage draped under a shrimp trawl. Admission is free but it is advised you to dress warmly (in your lopi peysa) as Ísafjörður in winter can be, well, cold.
