Icelandic Music Days in Amsterdam

Icelandic Music Days is a three day long music festival starting on the 11th of February until the 13th.
In close co-operation with Conservatorium van Amsterdam and the Icelandic Music Information Center it will bring icelandic music to the people of Amsterdam.
 
Young icelandic musicians will come together from all over Europe in order to perform a musical part of their cultural heritage, wether it is classical music, folk music or jazz.

Diversity is a must in a country with few inhabitants isolated
from the world and Icelandic Music Days is diverse indeed.
Icelandic Music Days is a festival where everybody should find something according to their taste.
