Extreme Chill Festival

Extreme Chill - Festival - Reykjavík

The 8th anniversary of the Icelandic music festival Extreme Chill will be held July 6th – July 9th in Reykjavík.

The festival is the first pure electronica festival in Iceland where both local and foreign musicians come together and perform under the inspiration of Icelandic nature. It caters to fans of underground Ambient, Electronica and Downtempo music.

The four day music festival has been held for seven years, 5 years in Hellissandur, a village on the mystical Snæfellsnes peninsula, one year in Berlin and last year in Vík í Mýrdal.

This year Extreme Chill will be held for the first time in Reykjavík and the reason for bringing the festival to the capital this year was simply because there aren’t many events in Reykjavík in the month of July.  There will be six different venues around the city: Húrra, Fríkirkjan í Reykjavík, Bíó Paradís, Mengi, Lucky Records & CenterHotel Miðgarður.

It will be the biggest to date featuring an impressive lineup of internationally renowned musicians such as The Orb (UK), Mixmaster Morris (UK), Courtesy (DK), Studnitzky (DE), Christopher Chaplin (UK), along with a host of talented local musicians: Jónas Sen, Jón Ólafsson & Futuregrapher, Yagya, Gyða Valtýsdóttir, Stereo Hypnosis, Reptilicus, Tonik Ensemble, Mikael Lind, SiGRÚN, Poco Apollo (Halldór Eldjárn) and many more.

Centerhotel Miðgarður will be hosting Extreme Chill on Saturday July 8th (14:00 – 18:00) with a great line up of Icelandic artists performing in a beautiful surrounding. Admission to this venue is FREE so we can´t wait to see you there!

Tickets to the festival are only 7,900 ISK, with a limited amount of festival passes being available this year at midi.is.
