It's like Sonar in Spain, but in Iceland
Sonar festival has gone from humble beginnings in Barcelona to a globetrotting behemoth. Like Sting or Bono, but nowhere near as irritating. In fact, it's pretty fantastic. An intimate festival celebrating the Icelandic capital's (can't be arsed to try and remember how to spell it again) smaller venues, its focus is on cementing the relationship between hardcore electronic music lovers and the acts they come to enjoy.
With five stages and a capacity of 3500, it's a small one, and a great way to see some top international (and Icelandic) DJs up close and, if you're very lucky, personal.
Don't confuse Iceland the country with Iceland the shop. They're very different things.
