Aldrei for eg sudur first began as an idea between Icelandic musician Mugison and his father, both of them Isafjordur natives. They were both keen to showcase Isafjordur’s vibrant music scene, and wanted to have as much fun as possible while doing it. Since its inception in 2004, the festival has gone from strength to strength, with festival-goers praising the relaxed atmosphere, unique location and the consistently strong festival line-up.
