A roundup of things to do in Reykjavík and beyond this August, as prepared by your fab-u-lous editors.
- This 3-6 August, the Westman Islands is the unlikely scene of the earth’s wildest annual party. It’s also where 93% of all Icelanders were conceived. Bring protection (from the weather).
- The Reykjavík Gay Pride Festival sashays its way into town 9-12 August. Wasn’t one of the Village People a Viking? Fierce!
- On 9 August, Hafdís Huld will hold her first-ever solo concert since leaving GusGus. It will be you and her mom, waving lighters.
- 18 August marks the running of the Reykjavík Marathon and the celebration of Culture Night. If all the running doesn’t make you barf, we’re sure that some of the modern art on display downtown will do the trick.
And hey – let’s be careful out there.
