The annual Reykjavík Fringe Festival is the home of the Icelandic grassroots art scene as well as a platform for more established performers to experiment and play. Our artists are a mix of local and international performers, speaking, singing and screaming in a variety of languages - or none at all.
The festival takes place at the height of summer, making the most of the long days and the midnight sun. Venues are all in central Reykjavík, a close walking distance from one another. Tickets are affordable and the atmosphere is always welcoming.
The festival was founded in 2018 by Jessica LoMonaco, Nanna Gunnars and Sindri Þór Sigríðarson. Due to limited venues, the festival is semi-curated but accepts all acts that bring their own venue.
