Sort of Review of Aldrei 2010 Festival
I think I was one of the few who listened to all the concerts on Friday & Saturday 2-3. April 2010 @ the most northly music festival Aldrei.
Local & very local talents like Baunirnar & Óminnishegrar were mixed with Hjaltalín & Hjálmar.
Enjoyed some young drummer, young rapper MC Ísaksen, the off-venue performance of the Pink Ladies swimming in the icy fjord on Saturday @ 12:00,...
But also had to undergo a sort of singing by people who better stay in the business of film making... Or better stayed have sober... Kannski.
A singing actor, doing a cross-over nasty boy between Johnny Rotten & Jerry Lee Lewis entertained the public but irritated the sound people.
I always thought that Good Friday is a good opportunity to cover Unun's song "Föstudagurinn langi". Nope.
