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.
