Reykjavík Jazz Festival 2013!

The annual Reykjavík Jazz Festival kicks-off for the 24th time on 15th August this year and will present some of the incredible musical talent found in Iceland together with an international first class line up.

International superstars like the Joshua Redman Quartet with Aaron Goldberg, Rueben Rogers and Gregory Hutchinson, mix a deep respect for the tradition of jazz with an uncanny ability to harness the unknown and unexpected. Winner of the 2011 Nordic Music Prize, Mats Gustafsson presents a solo concert where the extremes of the saxophone are explored.

As usual the Reykjavík Jazz Festival presents a variety of concerts performed by our local talent, among them guitar veteran Jon Pall Bjarnason, who will put to rest any notion of a generation gap in music. There will also be many opportunities to hear up-and-coming talent as well as the seasoned artists of rhythmic music.

Festival passes are already on sale and can be purchased on the festival web site.
