Anyone else go? I didn't see all that many bands but what I did see was amazing. Love that country.
It was my first time in Iceland and I loved it. So much music, day and night, to enjoy in between having a look around Reykjavik and the stunning countryside. My musical highlights were an amazing set from Moonface with Siinai, and I Break Horses, as well as seeing loads of very good Icelandic bands, e.g., I really enjoyed a local surf-rock band Barujarn when I was sitting around in a cafe on the day the wind made it unpleasant to go outside.
Was most disappointed with Purity Ring, who were dull. They were unfortunately on the DiS line-up, after Polica pulled out because they got a gig on the Jools Holland show. I reckon that's poor form, but is it understandable for a small-ish band to go for the increased exposure of a major TV appearance, over a festival in a small country?
