Innipúkinn Music Festival
During the first weekend of August, most of Reykjavík will flee to the countryside for the merchant’s holiday weekend called Verslunarmannahelgin and that weekend many inhabitants of Reykjavík go camping at some weird festival. But not us, enjoy the city and the music festival Innipúkinn with some good food, good tunes and good times.
Labor day weekend in Iceland sees most people hitting the road for some camping and festivities at festivals that take place in country side, but for those who prefer their own beds and cold beer over wet tents and warm beer there are few places better to be at then the Innipúkinn Music Festival that takes place over three nights in downtown Reykjavik from Friday to Sunday. For those interested the word Innipúki is a person that prefers to stay inside rather then to venture outside and is now associated with those who stay in-town during this particular weekend. This year marked the 13th edition of the festival. With smaller, less intimidating crowds, there’s no need to stay inside like an “innipúkinn” or house monster that weekend. It’s safe to come out of your cosy lairs agoraphobes!+
