Reykjavík Gets Steamy with Blues Music

The frigid North Atlantic city of Reykjavík could not be any different than the birthplace of blues music in the swampy, steamy state of Mississippi. Despite the odds, the genre has made it all the way up here in full force with the annual Reykjavík Blues Festival. Musicians will come from Europe, Iceland and North America and include Vasti Jackson and the Blue Ice band, Bo Halldórsson, Páll Rósinkranz & The Blues Mafia all stars band, Ferlegheit, Klassart, Devil’s Train, Marquise Knox, and Stone Stones. Even some real live Mississippi blues musicians will be there. So if you’re looking for something different to do around Easter break and you like smoking cigars and looking cool, then you should probably check out the Reykjavík Blues Festival. 
When: 16-20 April
Where: Hilton Reykjavík Nordica Hotel
How Much: 8990 ISK for festival pass, 3.990-4.490 ISK per show
