Sigur Rós Announce Norður Og Niður Festival :: Welcome to Hell
May 9th, 2017 | News
This December Sigur Rós cordially invite you to go to hell…“norður og niður” means “go north and go down”, but translates more accurately as “everything’s going to hell”.
For six days across christmas and new year the band will set up residence in Reykjavík’s state-of-the-art venue, Harpa, to fill the shortest days with the brightest array of music, art and performance from Iceland and beyond.
The band will perform four concerts in Eldborg, Harpa’s main hall, on December 27, 28, 29 and 30. these will be the first shows by the band in Iceland in five years, and their most intimate since the tiny regional shows on the Heima tour more than a decade ago.
In addition to Sigur Rós live, Norður og Niður will host musical performances, art installations, dance pieces, film screenings, spoken word and impromptu happenings, many of them featuring the extended network of friends and collaborators that they have met and worked with throughout their twenty-plus year career. Keep an eye out for further artist announcements.
With a capacity of only 1,500 per show, tickets for each Sigur Rós performance will be strictly limited to two per customer and released by proof of id. (That that scalpers!)
