This is what we do

Iceland Music is the music export office of Iceland. We facilitate the growth and development of the Icelandic music sector through building relationships between musicians and the various services that support their careers, such as festivals, PR and labels, and transnational promotion. Iceland Music also administers a number of export grants to Icelandic musicians which help them perform internationally.

We pack a punch.

Icelandic musicians have made a name for themselves the world over. With a population of less than half a million, Iceland has the highest ratio of musicians to inhabitants anywhere in the world. And many of them are multitalented, too - singer-songwriters abound, alongside a multitude of producers, sound engineers, and composers. There’s no limit to what they’re capable of.
