Iceland’s longest running metal festival, the Anti-Christian Festival, traces its roots all the way back to 2000 AD, when it was held to stick it to a nearby Christianity festival at Þingvellir—now it’s just sticking it to overly bland musical performances. This year, the Good News includes premier black metal bands Abominor, Auðn, Aureole, Mannveira and Misþyrming. Don’t miss your chance to give it the right sort of praise.

The Anti-Christian Festival commences at 21:00 tonight in Gaukurinn. Admission is 1,500 ISK. See our listings page for more information.
