Siggi’s best music venues in Reykjavik
The Harpa Concert Hall
Designed by Danish architects with the help of artist Olafur Eliasson, it is both a landmark in Reykjavik and a vibrant musical and cultural institution. “A wonderful concert hall,” Siggi says.
A cozy little venue in downtown Reykjavik with live music during the week and DJs on weekends.
One of Iceland’s best dance clubs for working up a sweat into the wee hours.
An old club built in the early 1950s, it was the most popular one in Reykjavik for a long time, but it closed in 2012, despite major protests. Siggi says it will be opening again – watch this space!
Another downtown bar that is also a venue for gigs is Gaukurinn. “I play here sometimes with slightly younger local acts,” Siggi says.
