Music Festival in Borgarfjörður Eystri, Iceland

drive iceland

It takes place in a tiny seaside community called Borgarfjörður-Eystri which is located in the far north-east of Iceland, home to just around 100 people. To get there you have to drive 70km from the nearest town, mostly on gravel roads. This tiny community is placed in the bottom of a small fjord, surrounded by huge mountains. 

The accommodations are not what you would expect at a music festival. There is a large camping ground where many choose to stay and at which the usual festival mood forms. You could also camp in one of the many, large back yards owned by the few people that live and have houses there.

The music usually fits the surroundings, with artsy folk, country and indy rock musicians manning the line-up. Among the bigger names to have played at Bræðslan are Emiliana Torrini, Damien Rice and Belle and Sebastian. Among the smaller, local musicians are Dikta, Of Monsters and Men, 200.000 Naglbýtar and many more.
