2 Day Acoustic "Melodica" Festival @ Reykjavik 30-31. August

The Icelandic branch of Undercover Music Lovers, an international network of musicians and music lovers, is to host a two day acoustic festival at the newly opened Café Rosenberg in Klapparstígur, Reykjavik. The event, named Melodica, will feature 18 acoustic acts - 5 international and 13 Icelandic – who will play from 4pm-11pm on Saturday 30. and Sunday 31. August, followed by a jam into the night by the troubadours and other artists.
The Melodica festival has been held in Sydney, Melbourne and Hamburg to date. The Undercover Music Lovers organisation is a sister organisation of the International Troubadour Conspiracy, a network of singer/songwriters that help each other out with touring, accommodation, booking and promoting. Recently the International Troubadour Conspiracy hosted the Troubadour Olympics, as four international troubadours toured Iceland, Germany and Holland.
