Úlfur Úlfur Announce First International Tour
July 19th, 2017 | News
Icelandic rap legends, Úlfur Úlfur have been making a big name for themselves within their home country, for a while now, often wowing international audiences at Airwaves etc. But now, its time for them to break out, and get on a big old tour to show their rap prowess to some key Eastern European cities.
Úlfur Úlfur is not your typical rap duo – they are always trying to do things outside of the box: they played a huge show on a top of Esja mountain in Iceland on the outskirts of Reykjavik, they surprised their fans by dropping three incredible videos promoting their new album which came out this Spring and now they’re embarking on a European adventure. The two have gained recognition in Iceland not only as the sort of ‘godfathers’ of the Icelandic hip-hop scene, but also thanks to their charisma and insanely energetic live shows. Úlfur Úlfur have started to steal the hearts of audiences around the globe, making you forget that they even rap in a different language because you’re so caught up in dancing to Helgi’s beats.
At last year’s Iceland Airwaves the duo amazed not only the local audience, but also blew the minds of the international festival-goers with their strong beats and catchy rapping style. Earlier this year they played in Estonia at Tallinn Music Week, in Poland at Spring Break and in the Netherlands at the only hip hop showcase in Europe – New Skool Rules. After a busy summer on their home island, Arnar and Helgi are not taking a break. In September, they head out on tour around Europe to play 10 shows in Estonia, Russia, Lithuania and Poland. Catch them where you can!

Úlfur Úlfur (Eng: Wolf Wolf) is a rap duo from the island country of Iceland. Their 2015 sophomore album Tvær Plánetur took home the 2016 award for Album of The Year at the 2016 Icelandic listening awards. At the beginning of May 2017, Úlfur Úlfur dropped a triple video and new album entitled Hefnið okkar aka ‘Our revenge’.
They are a rap duo that wants you to question everything, flip cars and break stuff while enjoying life and all of its little quirks. Their songs span the whole spectrum but most of all they go hard. They’re not afraid to think outside the box and go beyond the boundaries of rap music, mix different ideologies together and create something extraordinary along the way. The band, loved by Icelanders in their native country, are just starting to creep abroad and make waves amongst new audiences (including in Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and more).
The rap duo explode with energy and ideas both on and off stage. Úlfur Úlfur, with their fat, catchy beats, are guaranteed to have you on your feet, arms in their air, pretending you know Icelandic like a native.
