Festivals and events
Throughout the year, there are many fascinating music festivals and events in Iceland that serve as a great introduction to the diverse talent that is to be found in the country. Some even feature performances by select international acts and artists that are usually of the highest calibre. The following is a list of some of the main ones.

Gæran is a unique music festival with around 20 icelandic bands. Both up-and-comers and well known bands. The festival is held in the only tanning factory in iceland and the only tanning factory that makes fish-leather in Europe. That gives the festival a fresh approach and the festival goers can both see great music and learn a little about tanning for fashion. The word Gæran means lambskin and the concert venue is covered with lambskins witch gives this a great Icelandic feel.
