FAQ

Hey! Look! It’s Your Handy Aldrei fór ég suður FAQ!

Where the hell are you staging Aldrei fór ég suður this year?

Good question!

This year, we’ll be partying in a newly built warehouse-type building that Kampi, a local shrimp processing plant, is graciously allowing us to use for the purpose. The site is in the harbor area, pretty much on the spot we call Neðstikaupstaður (right by the local maritime museum and fabled restaurant Tjöruhúsið). To be exact: we’ll be partying where Ásgeirsgata and Suðurgata meet.

Who’s playing this year’s Aldrei fór ég suður festival? Are there bands? Rappers? A DJ? A comedian? What’s going on?

How the hell can I purchase a ticket to Aldrei fór ég suður? How much are they, anyway?

Great question!

We’ve never charged admittance to Aldrei fór ég suður – and we’re not doing it this year, either. Come, have fun, for free. Yes, it’s free.

How do you manage to stage a music festival like Aldrei fór ég suður for free? Are you magicians?

AMAZING QUESTION.

Nope. We are basically Muggles. However, we receive great support from a number of local companies, along with some non-local ones. Furthermore, the municipality of Ísafjarðarbær—where it all goes down—is tremendously helpful. We also sell a lot of stuff on site; you should get some. 

What if I get hungry and/or thirsty at this years Aldrei fór ég suður festival?

That’s an excellently worded, multilayered question. Take a moment to consider the answer to your last question, question number three. You’ll find that we wrote that we “sell a lot of stuff on site.” And that includes stuff you can eat, as well as stuff you can drink. Lots of stuff. Also: the festival is within walking distance of loads of shops and restaurants that can sell you many delicious things you can use to fill your belly. But, whatever it is we’ll be selling is surely the best stuff you’ll get.

BUT! What if I suddenly find myself in need of some sort of garment, like a hat or t-shirt or whatever, or maybe a temporary tattoo, at this year’s Aldrei fór ég suður festival?

That’s the greatest question of all time! Thank you!

We’ve always sold premium merch at the festival, carefully emblazoned with the festival’s name and logo and whatever else we feel emblazoning. This year will prove no exception. Call us The Emblazoners if you will. We emblazon like crazy.

And guess what! It is an undisputed fact that anyone who wears clothing emblazoned with the Aldrei fór ég suður name or logo, or dons Aldrei fór ég suður themed jewelry or perhaps an Aldrei fór ég suður temporary tattoo automatically becomes The Coolest Person around. Why? Because they’re actively sporting the coolest stuff—while actively supporting the coolest festival! It’s cool!
