For the first time ever, tickets are on sale for the Reykjavík Music Mess, an independent music festival that will take over NASA and the Nordic House on April 16 and 17. The fest will feature a slew of local bands (Mugison, kimono, Prinspóló, Sin Fang, Skakkamanage and Reykjavík! have all been announced – with many more to come) along with some very special guests from abroad. Namely, Deerhunter.
Yes, the mighty Deerhunter, who lots of (alt. minded) folks claim made the best record of 2010 with ‘Halcyon Digest’ are set to play alongside some of Iceland’s best and brightest at a two day music marathon (or ‘mess’, if you will). This is very exciting. Go ahead and prepare by playing the massive Deerhunter catalogue over and over, get your tickets and further info at at the Music Mess website and reacquaint yourself with some of the local acts performing (as well as the lovely Nive Nielsen from Greenland).
Did we mention we are sponsoring this event? How could we not? Goddamn Deerhunter! See y’all there!
