PARTÍÞOKAN: WIN A FREE TRIP, FOOD AND ACCOMMODATION!

PARTÍÞOKAN: WIN A FREE TRIP, FOOD AND ACCOMMODATION!

Words by

Published June 18, 2012

Enjoy camping? Concerts? Bonfires? You’re in luck, scouts.
Get in touch with your wild side at Partíþokan, a music festival that takes place in Seyðisfjörður on June 22 & 23. Friday night boasts Snorri Helgason, Mr. Silla and Hugleikur Dagsson performing. On Saturday, Jónas Sigurðsson og Ritvélar framtíðarinnar, Prins Póló and Ojba Rasta take the stage.
Weekend passes are 3500 ISK for the concert and can be picked up at Aldan in Seyðisfjörður. Camping, however, is not included in the ticket price, and weekend passes cost 1000 ISK.
Plus, there’s this message we received from the bands:
SUMMER IS HERE AND WE ARE GOING TO A COUNTRY PARTY EXTRAVAGANZA! WILL YOU AND YOUR AWESOME FRIEND JOIN US?
Do you want to win a weekend trip in a band bus, to join some of the most awesome bands of today on a trip to Höfn í Hornafjörður and Seyðisfjörður (and back)? If not, you can stop reading right now because what follows might offend your sensibilities. We are offering a seat in a really cool band bus, free entrance to the concerts Humarþruman and Partýþokan (“LobsterThunder” and “PartyFog”), a chance to hang out backstage after the show, two meals sitting next to the bands and a place to stay (one night in Höfn and one in Seyðisfjörður). For you and a friend! If such an adventure tickles your fancy, we ask you to answer the following seven questions. Who knows whether you’ll win? Who knows whether you’ll get to ride this rockin’ rollercoaster of Icelandic rock’n’roll reality COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE?
1. Have you tasted a lobster hot dog?
2. Have you gotten drunk with ‘landi’?
3. Have you been to a German rave?
4. Which would you prefer: Prinspóló or Hraun?
5. You’re in a bus and the driver has passed out from drinking too much Appelsín. What do you do?
6. What would you take with you on the Partyfog bus?
7. Valur or Fram?
