Every Icelandic musician, every musician living in Iceland, everybody on planet Earth, is invited to bring a tribute to a song featured in the rockumentary Rokk í Reykjavík. This documentary was directed by famous director and Oscar nominee Friðrik Þór Friðriksson in the winter of 1981-1982.
The tribute has to filmed and be put on YouTube or Vimeo with the key words “Rock” or “Rokk” and “Reykjavik”, between 1. January and 31. March 2012.
Every participating musician is asked to donate 1.000 IKR, to take part in this competition (= Birthday gift to the Puffin with red mohawk WIHO).
All videos will be evaluated by an international jury.
The best videos will be posted on the several blogs to get international exposure afterwards.
Also the best videos will be shown at Gaukurinn á Stöng on Thursday 24. May 2012 between 18:00 and 19:30.
Afterwards, between 20:00 – 00:00 there will be a private birthday party of WIHO at this venue. The selected, invited artists are challenged to bring a cover on stage. The bands or musicians with a very good video will also be asked to perform their track on stage of the famous venue Gaukurinn.
The money on the Save Ice Bank account will be used to produce a DVD and CD of this tribute concert and tribute videos, to be finished in 2013.
