Iceland has really shown other small countries (by other countries, I mean Ireland primarily) how to make yourself a music destination. With Airwaves keeping things lit in Reykjavik, ATP having touched down there earlier this year and now, recently Sonar has been taking itself north for a couple of years along with its regular spot Barcelona.
Sonar Reykjavík happens over four days in February at the Harpa Concert House from 16th to the 20th across the five-stages with a 3,500 capacity and so far, will feature:
Hudson Mohawke, Squarepusher, Holly Herndon, Oneohtrix Point Never, Rødhåd, Recondite, Black Madonna, AV AV AV and local acts Apparat Organ Quartet, Úlfur Úlfur , Sturla Atlas, Gangly, Skeng and The Vaginaboys.
