LungA Warm Up Party
19:00 – IÐNÓ – Free!
Iceland’s best arts and music festival is back for 2019. LungA—held annually in the far-easterly outpost of Seyðisfjörður—is an unforgettable time, when this small town comes to life with music, art, and spontaneous creativity. However, for those who can’t make the pilgrimage to East Iceland this summer, there’s a Reykjavík warm-up event taking place at rejuvenated music and arts hub IÐNÓ. Come celebrate LungA 2019 with theatrical punks Grísalappalísa, eerie lo-fi duo Madonna + Child, rising star Prince Fendi, and plenty more weird and wonderful alternative music scene favourites. There will also be a special song by the Icelandic Whistling Orchestra, aerial performances, and plenty of surprises. Very much in the festival’s spirit, the show is BYOI: Bring your own installation.
