HARPA – a striking addition to the Icelandic and international cultural and conference scene.
Harpa opened its doors on May 4th and celebrated its final opening ceremony in August 2011 when the building was formally inaugurated.
Harpa provides outstanding facilities in the centre of Reykjavik, Iceland. The building is the ideal venue for various concerts and musical events, international conferences, conventions with accompanying trade shows, as well as meetings.
Harpa has already welcomed over 850,000 guests and an impressive cast of celebrated musicians and cultural icons to its halls since opening in May 2011.
Performers have included British pop sensation Jamie Cullum; German tenor Jonas Kaufmann; world-renowned pianist Maria Joao Pires, violinist and conductor Maxim Vengerov, conductor Gustavo Dudamel and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.
In the coming months, Harpa will present more iconic cultural figures and musicians such as Bjork and Yoko Ono, as part of the Iceland Airwaves annual music festival in November.
