Following cooperation between the Iceland Airwaves music festival and the Norwegian music conference-cum-festival By:Larm, Icelandic bands FM Belfast, Bloodgroup and Benni Hemm Hemm will perform at By:Larm next month.
By:Larm is Scandinavia’s largest music conference and will host meetings and presentations intended for professionals in the music industry as well as more than 150 concerts open to all festival goers.
Icelandic musicians Reykjavík!, Lay Low and the Ultra Mega Techno Band Stefán played at special Iceland Airwaves acts during By:Larm 2007. Last October representatives of the festival attended Iceland Airwaves and picked the bands that will perform at this year’s By:Larm.
The festival was first held in 1998 and attracts hundreds of professionals in the music industry from the other Nordic countries as well as from Britain and the European mainland. Each year By:Larm is held in a different Norwegian city; this year Oslo is the host.
