Svavar and Berglind left Reykjavík behind two years ago to establish a rural venue and guesthouse. They’ve since opened the doors of HAVARÍ, an old barn turned performance space at their farm Karlsstaðir, in East Iceland which they’ve turned into a music venue. Among this summer’s high-profile musical guests are Icelandic electro band FM Belfast.
Árni Rúnar Hlöðversson and Lóa Hlín Hjálmtýsdóttir’s band was a studio project for some time, but in 2006 the Iceland Airwaves festival gave them a turbo boost.Today the band has released three albums and is touring all over the world.
FM Belfast will perform at HAVARÍ on August 12 at 22:00. A ticket costs 3000 ISK.
