The Icelandic Music Experiments


21. - 28.  March

The Icelandic Music Experiments sees bands battle in venues throughout the city for the title of the latest Icelandic act set to erupt.

The Icelandic Music Experiments (I.M.E.) has been the main event for young & uprising bands in Iceland since 1982. Bands compete in a number of rounds with semi-final nights and one grand final. Up to 40 bands participate every year in great venues around the city, surrounded by professional staff and friendly atmosphere.

The main goal of the I.M.E. is to make way for young and uprising musicians from Iceland, giving them an opportunity to perform on a professional level and even get rewarded with spectacular prizes, that include recording sessions, music instruments etc. Throughout the years, I.M.E. has proven to be a milestone for promising new bands and is still a great event for the evergrowing Icelandic music scene. 

Every year, 40-50 bands/musicians are offered a chance to perform. Hitt Húsið will select and approve the applications, based on the rules of the I.M.E. Those who will be rejected, will get their registration fee back.

The festival has proven to be a milestone for promising new acts and is a great event for the ever-growing Icelandic music scene.
