Stefán Magnússon, founder, Eistnaflug Festival
The year 2014 was really dramatic: personally, in Icelandic politics, and with Eistnaflug. It was absolutely the biggest Eistnaflug we ever staged, definitely one of the year’s high points. On that note: Eistnaflug 2015 is going to be even bigger—the biggest metal festival Iceland has ever seen. Mark my words, it will be awesome. And in general, 2015 will be our best year in a long time. This is a goal.
Fucking politics are the worst thing in Iceland right now. Our fucking politicians are full of shit, their rotten politics basically amount to Iceland’s anus. I can’t describe how much I hate Icelandic politics. It’s unbelievable, how they manage to fuck everything up, and how extremely fucking stupid those fucking people squatting Alþingi seem to be.
Fuck, I don’t mean to be so negative. Just thinking about that stuff gets me riled up. I’m a lover—I have love for every single human, on an individual level—and I hope that 2015 will be a great year for everybody. I am sure it will be.
