Reykjavik

Reykjavík has an active cultural life through most of the year, and is especially strong in music and the visual arts. The classical performing-arts scene tends to quiet down somewhat in summer, though a growing number of rock and jazz concerts as well as a new chamber music festival held in Harpa, called Reykjavík Midsummer Music, have been helping to fill in the lull. The Reykjavík Arts Festival is an annual event held in May. Past festivals have drawn Luciano Pavarotti and David Bowie, among other stars. Check out The Reykjavík Grapevine (www.grapevine.is) for up-to-date listings; it's biweekly in summer, monthly in winter.
