From Iceland — The Grapevine Interns Highlight What’s Happening This Weekend

The Grapevine Interns Highlight What’s Happening This Weekend

Published March 27, 2015

The time in Reykjavík is passing so fast. We all are almost at the end of our internship. Nevertheless we we have a lot of things to do and that is why we are pretty happy about the upcoming weekend. Like every weekend there are a lot of parties and events and we help you to decide which one you need to choose.


Anna is into classical music that is set at the Nordic House tonight. As part of the Iceland International Flute Festival there are two free concerts on March 27 and 28. It is probably one of the few occasions to enjoy a glass of red wine while listen to the music.

Ragna is going to enjoy the great Beatles cover band Helter Skelter that is performing at Café Rosenberg tonight. Get ready to rock’n’roll and enjoy your evening!

Stefanie and Victor are going to end this week with dancing. Stefanie is excited about DJ Ívar Pétur, a member of FM Belfast, who will turn on some great electronic music at Húrra tonight. Victor is going to start the weekend at Lebowski bar. DJ Halli and DJ Anna Brá play some electronic dance music. There is a dance floor where you can have a lot of fun, but you also can sit upstairs and feel like you’re sitting in a real American diner. Hopefully Victor and Stefanie are going to meet each other somewhere downtown.


Anna, who has a penchant for British humor, got tickets for Eddie Izzard. He is passing through Iceland. The British stand-up comedian is performing at Harpa, but if you’re hearing about this for the first time you’re late to the game; his show is sold out.

Ragna is going to go to KEX Hostel for the Golden Shears competition 2015. It is going to be funny as well as very interesting. You might want to check it out if you’re interested in enjoying a dash of Icelandic farming culture.

Stefanie is going to The Icelandic Music Experiments to see the best of upcoming Icelandic musicians in Iceland. Admission for the night is only 1000 ISK.

Once again, Viktor is going to party at Lebowski. He’s a really big fan and looks forward to DJ Jesús and DJ De La Rósa. Party all night long!


Anna continues her cultural interest and she wants to go to the Reykjavík 871 +/- 2: The Settlement Exhibition. Visitors have an overview of archaeological findings from ruins of one of the oldest houses in Iceland as well as other excavations in the city centre.

Ragna is also into culture. The Press Photo 2014 exhibition of the Press Photographer’s Union of Iceland at Kópavogur Art Museum she is interested. It runs until April 12 and the visitors can see the various nominated photos and the best videos of the year.

Stefanie is going to let her fantasies go wild at Ámundi’s exhibition ‘Let Go’. She’s attracted to the vibrant colors and images born out of fantasy, which will go well with her hangover after Saturday night’s party. It sounds like fun.

Victor is interested in the island’s origin, so he’s going to check out ‘This is what Iceland is made of: Volcanic rocks‘ for an overview of Iceland’s geological history and volcanic systems. Admission is free.
