The weather, it's getting better

The organisers of the Rauðasandur Music Festival have announced that despite some concern yesterday, thepotentially foul weather in the area has let up, and the schedule will go on as advertised! Due to yesterday’s concerns, the organisers of the steadily growing grassroots-festival had urged festivalgoers to camp by a community centre in nearby Patreksfjörður. The backup plan has now been shelved, and Rauðasandur attendees can now pitch their tents on the red sands that the festival takes its name from.

Last year, the festival’s entire programme was moved to Patreksfjörður due to extreme weather conditions.
