Eistnaflug 2005 / Flying testicles 2005
On Saturday a huge metal festival will take place titled Eistnaflug 2005 – Metalfest.
The festival will take place in Egilsbud (the community center) in Neskaupstadur where no less than 13 metal bands will go on stage to satisfy rock thirsty residents on the east coast.
Stefán Magnússon is the man in charge of this festival and claims to be fulfilling a promise when asked about the occasion.
“I was in a band called Dys with Siggi punk-nurse and others.
When my wife and I decided to move to Neskaupstadur, she doing nursing and I teaching gymnastics, I made a promise to my friends to host a festival like this soon.”
Stefán says to sense bit of excitement amongst the locals understandably by the youth who look the most forward to it, spending most the time with them in (the local school) Nesskoli where he is a teacher.
“This has never been done before so we are doing it blindfolded in terms of attendance. I have however been busy marketing and advertising all over and asked friends and family to spread the word on their travels. The program will start at 2 pm. and will be over sometime after dinner and of course there will be no age limit. You could really say this to be a family festival. It will even have a upbringing value. Ear protection will be handed out and we will have a brawl.”
Stefán says he will have no worries that the heading of the festival will irritate the organizers of Neistaflug.
( Neistaflug = Flying sparks. The festival is held on the labor day weekend).
