Where Everybody Knows Your Name: New Neighborhoods Festival

Where Everybody Knows Your Name: New Neighborhoods Festival

Published August 12, 2016

The first ever New Neighborhoods Festival is here! Musicians and visual artists, both Polish and Icelandic, join forces to create a feast for eyes and ears. The festival starts here in Reykjavík but continues in Warsaw later this fall. The festival’s goal is to strengthen the bond between the two countries through music and video art. The event features the cremé de la cremé from both the Icelandic and Polish music scenes—The Stubs, Tonik Ensemble and Úlfur Úlfur, to name a few.

New Neighborhood Festival is taking place at KEX Hostel on August 20 at 14:30. Admission is free!
