For Sigur Rós ticket holders: Please note that Norður og niður headliners will not clash with Sigur Rós showtimes. Full schedule to be announced in the coming weeks.
Additionally, a full program of cinema will be revealed with selected screenings and talks from some of Sigur Rós’s friends and collaborators. Oscar-nominated director Dean DeBlois will talk about making the Sigur Rós documentary Heima, while and Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoum of NASA and SETI Institute will showcase her offbeat film about the real world preparedness for asteroid impact in Disaster Playground. Elsewhere fast-rising young composer Daníel Bjarnason will talk about his score work on Under the Tree, and Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson will introduce a screening of Friðrik Þór Friðriksson’s acclaimed Angels of the Universe. More talks and screenings to be added.
No-one lights up the dark days quite like the Icelanders. Reykjavík’s reputation for being able to throw a party is not lightly earned, and NORÐUR OG NIÐUR will significantly ramp up a holiday season already filled with fun, festivities and a truly insane arsenal of fireworks.
Please note that all tickets for Sigur Rós's performance in Eldborg are sold out.
