We’ve been tracking pretty closely the announcements by the organizers of Iceland’s Eistnaflug festival about the bands who will be appearing there next July. Even before today, the line-up was ridiculously good — but today Eistnaflug made it even more ridiculous by naming ten more bands to the festival schedule — including the mighty Enslaved, joining Behemoth and Godflesh as a co-headliner. This will be Enslaved’s first appearance in Iceland.
With today’s announcement, the line-up now includes nine Icelandic bands including the Icelandic band of the hour, Sólstafir, as well as the legendary Icelandic institution HAM (whose surprise appearance at the recently completed Iceland Airwaves festival was featured in another post on our site today). The other seven bands announced today are Börn, Dimma, Grísalappalísa, Lights on the Highway, Momentum, Muck, Saktmóðigur, and Severed.
With this third artist announcement, the total number of confirmed bands for the 11th edition of the Eistnaflug festival has reached 25, with still more bands to be announced.
The confirmed bands are:
Brain Police (IS)
In Solitude (SE)
Lights on the Highway (IS)
Rotting Christ (GR)
The Vintage Caravan (IS)
