Reykjavik Calling Concert

Enjoy a free concert at Horseshoe Tavern on September 22 with artists curated by Iceland Airwaves featuring BSÍ, Cell7 and DJ Hermigervill.

Iceland's most exciting artists play live at Reykjavik Calling

Silla and Julius from the band BSÍ

BSÍ
Having started BSÍ under the premise of trying instruments they didn't know how to play, Silla Thorarensen (drums & vocals) and Julius Pollux Rothlaender (bass guitar & toe-synths) understand their band as a playground for simply being who they are. Two best friends, rumbling and rolling through life, not taking themselves too seriously, struggling with self-doubts and imperfection while trying to see these as empowering virtues, unafraid to just do and be what- or however they feel.

Watch the traffic, bring a dancer and a therapist, BSÍ is coming to your town!

Taste of Iceland Cell7

Cell7
The Icelandic hip hop scene may still be young and small but Cell7—a pioneer of the genre and a rare female presence in a male dominated world—is not just one of its steady fixtures but also one of its brightest stars. As a veteran of the Icelandic rap scene, Cell7 is constantly cited as an inspiration for established artists and women just breaking into the genre. She returned in 2019 with her sophomore solo album, “Is anybody listening?” and proves yet again that she is one of the most original voices out there.

DJ Hermigervill will host the evening and play Icelandic tunes with a twist to keep guests entertained.
