Músíktilraunir 2011 winners Samaris are on their way to Europe in a few days, to take part in a project with high aspirations.
Samaris will be leaving this Monday, 22 August, for Holland, to take part in a project called Stage Europe Network. The goal of the project is, according to a press release from Hitt Húsið, to bring young people together from across Europe through musical appreciation and composition.
Performing at the event are bands from Norway, Holland, Poland, France, Germany and Iceland. These bands will perform at three concerts in Rotterdam and Delft, but Samaris were specifically invited to the street art festival Blikopener.
Samaris have newly released an EP, featuring three new songs and three remixes. Their trip to Europe has been sponsored by and organised by Hitt Húsið and Icelandair.
