We are excited to welcome you to Nordic Music Days 2022 in Iceland. The festival takes place in the capital Reykjavík and the municipality of Kópavogur. Next to many concerts at various venues and in public spaces the rich festival program offers an exhibition of innovative instruments, a conference on global impact in the arts, concerts for school children and a workshop for young music journalists. Please join in and share our passion for international community building!

The Nordic Music Days have been organized since 1888 as one of the oldest festivals for contemporary classical music in the world. The festival is unique in the sense that it is organized by the composers themselves. This years’ festival is organized by the Icelandic Composers’ Society.
