Eistnaflug rock festival- Neskaupstaður

The Fest:
Eistnaflug is a music festival held in the town of Neskaupstaður, in east Iceland the second weekend in July, annually since 2005. It is the largest festival of its kind in Iceland, focusing on heavy metal, rock and other indie music.
The festival has come a long way since it was first held as a small party for a few Icelandic bands and their friends to attend. Back then all of the visitors and bands literally fit into a 50 person bus. In 2017 the number of attendees was significantly more with 2000-2500 rockers enjoying music on the edge of the world. As the festival continued over the years it has attracted a wide variety of not only metal and rock fans but fans of genre-bending music.
The Town:
The town of Neskaupstaður is situated on the breathtaking Norðfjörður (North Fjord) and the town’s population more than doubles when metalheads sweep into the small, idyllic town.
We hope to see you soon!
Team Eistnaflug

Towns & Villages

Each town in Austurland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages t, the influence of North European neighbors obvious to everyone. 

The French made a strong impact in Fáskrúðsfjörður where the road signs are made out in French as well as in Icelandic. Norwegian influence is easily detected in the Eskifjörður and Seydisfjörður architecture. No such roots are to be seen in Egilsstadir which is the latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
