Dark Music Days

Music Festival

Dark Music Days will take place at Harpa 26 – 28 January .

Dark Music Days is an annual festival of contemporary and new music which takes place during the darkest period of the Icelandic winter at Harpa. The festival was founded in 1980 by the Iceland Composers’ Society as a platform for Icelandic composers to present their work. Today the festival is a platform for performing and getting to know new music with an emphasis on new Icelandic compositions and performers in addition to international artists.

The Dark Music Days 2017  will present a cross section of pioneering contemporary music from both sides of the Atlantic. The focus lies on works with mixed techniques where the boundaries of contemporary music performance are explored.
