What’s on

All Day I Dream will make its Icelandic debut on Friday, June 22.

For those looking for something more downtempo, The Lava Tunnel offers the perfect opportunity to explore the magic hidden inside Raufarhólshellir, a 5,200 year old lava tunnel filled with natural ice sculptures and stalactites soundtracked by some of Iceland’s leading acoustic artists. Saturday, June 23 will see soulful singer/songwriter Una Stef play to the sold out crowd, pop rock and folk singer Birgir and up and comer GDRN with her soothing and hypnotic vocals take to the intimate Lava Tunnel stage. On Sunday, June 24, 6 piece electro indie band Valdimar, the “Norah Jones of Iceland,” songstress Ása and local folk singer and feel good legend Teitur Magnússon will showcase their talents to The Lava Tunnel pass holders in what is sure to be a standout experience of the entire festival.
