Dark Music Days (Myrkir Músíkdagar), the Icelandic contemporary music festival, is held annually in Reykjavik at the end of January. Due to Covid-19 and consequent restrictions, the organisers of the festival have decided to postpone the festival until the end of April 2021. The programme and specific dates of the festival will be announced in the beginning of 2021 on the festival’s website –  https://www.darkmusicdays.is/ – and on social media platforms.

Founded in 1980, Dark Music Days (Myrkir Músíkdagar) is one of the country’s oldest music festivals and throughout its history it has been an important showcase for progressive contemporary music in Iceland. The programme is wide-ranging and eclectic, reflecting the diversity of the Icelandic music scene today.

The festival’s new Artistic Director is the renowned publisher, producer and project manager Ásmundur Jónsson, who was appointed earlier this year. Ásmundur has worked in the Icelandic music scene for over 40 years and there is barely any field of it that he hasn’t been involved with. 

A further press announcement giving details of the festival programme will be made in January 2021. Supporters are also encouraged to consult the festival’s website. 

The Dark Music Days team looks forward to seeing you in April for Dark Music Days 2021.
