Eistnaflug started out as a small one day metal festival on the 27th of August 2005.
In the intervening years it has grown into a four day festival where metal, hardcore, punk, rock, and indie bands share the stage.
In 2015 Eistnaflug was taken to another level with a move to a larger venue, featuring over 60 bands.
Musically, Eistnaflug is a remarkable melting pot, with a few selected,
prime foreign acts stacking up against a massive selection of all the
great things the Icelandic music scene has to offer each year.
Among foreign bands that have graced the Eistnaflug stage are:
Behemoth (PL), Enslaved (NO), Carcass (UK), At the Gates (SE), Havok (US),
Triptykon (CH), Napalm Death (UK), Secrets of the Moon (DE),
Rotting Christ (GR), The Monolith Deathcult (NL),
Contradiction (DE) and Cephalic Carnage (US).
Among notable Icelandic bands are Sólstafir, Skálmöld,
Misþyrming, Momentum and The Vintage Caravan,
Vintage Caravan, Kælan Mikla, Pink Street Boys.
This year Eistnaflug will be in the Gymnasium.
AGE LIMIT FOR THE FESTIVAL IS 18 YEARS AND IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY THAT COUNTS.
