5. - 8. JULY NESKAUPSTAÐUR ICELAND
The Eistnaflug Festival
Welcome to Eistnaflug – the Flying Testicle festival! Things are a little bit different in Iceland as you might have guessed from our name. Every second weekend in July since the summer of 2005, people have gathered from all over this island and from abroad to gather in the proud little town of Neskaupstaður with about 1.400 hospitable inhabitants at the Norðfjörður fjord on the eastern coast of Iceland, 700km away from Reykjavik – one way or the other.
Eistnaflug started out as a one day metal festival, but has meanwhile grown into a four day event filled with metal, hardcore, punk, rock, indie band, and more. In this remarkable musical melting pot, you will find a few choice acts from across the seas stacked up against a massive selection of all the great things the Iceland music scene has to offer every year. There are no boundaries, except for behaving well and repaying the generous friendship of the local people in kind.
