Sykur has long been a beacon in Iceland’s galaxy of electronic music. The glamorous singer Agnes pulls us in, sporting killer heels, whipping her pink dreadlocks back and forth, growling her way into our soul.

GKR, on the other hand, has the Icelandic hip-hop scene wrapped around his finger (not the middle one—he’s too nice for that). His artistic take on the most important meal of the day in “Morgunmatur” (“Breakfast”) is so mesmerising that audiences from all corners of the island forget that they, too, have breakfast every morning. Whoa.

The concert is at Húrra, Naustin, and starts at 21:00. Admission is 1,000 ISK.
