One of Akureyri biggest events is the AK Extreme Festival that is held over 4-days in early-April. They offer many events all around Akureyri and at the nearby mountain Hlíðarfjall. The main event is the Eimskip Container Big Jump at Gilið above town center in Akureyri, it is scheduled for Saturday night and broadcast on national television so the foreign enthusiast can also enjoy it through the internet. Only top riders with the required guts to handle the extreme sketchiness of the drop in are invited to take part in the competition. The crowd watching are over 7000+ people from all over Iceland.

They throw special parties and concerts in downtown Akureyri with many famous Icelandic artists, from electronic to metal music for participants to enjoy in the evening.
