Three new acts have been added to the Iceland Inspires concert line up, taking place July 1 in Hamragarðar near Seljalandsfoss waterfall and the now quiet Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
Amongst the new acts is Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice, who has released two major albums and sold over 4 million copies worldwide. He is a great admirer and friend of Iceland‘s, coming here frequently both for work and pleasure.
Also announced is singer Hafdís Huld, who has garnered much attention both at home and abroad for her latest album Synchronised Swimmers. The band Pondus, whose members have played with notable Icelandic musicians such as Emiliana Torrini and Sigur Rós, will also perform.
Acts previously announced on the show‘s bill are Gus Gus, Seabear, Lay Low, Hjaltalín, Dikta, For A Minor Reflection, and many more.
The concert, being put on by the Inspired By Iceland campaign, intends to show the beauty of Iceland and the many talented people who live here.
The open-air event will be free of charge and welcome for all to attend. It will also be streamed live on their website, along with special pre-taped performances recorded at various locations throughout the country.
Update!: Our good friends at Iceland Excursions are offering free bus rides to and from the concert at Hamragarður. The show is about two hours away from Reykjavík. The bus will depart from the tourist information centre at Lækjatorg at 18:00 on July 1 and will drop off at the same location after the show.
