ICELANDAIR'S SPECIAL AIRWAVES OFFER IS NOW SOLD OUT!!
the first Danish label Crunchy Frog has a showcase at the acclaimed and
super cool (in all definitions of the word) Reykjavik festival ICELAND
The Festival has been going on for several years and
pride itself with offering the very best of the dynamic Icelandic music
scene + a few handfuls of the up and coming stars of the international
scene. The festival takes place in venues, concert halls and bars
around Reykjavik - all within walking distance of each other. So the
audience get to experience the bands up close and can go back and forth
between the various venues. A truely cosy, intimate and hectic 4 days
of great music and heavy drinking.

In 2005 the main attraction will - of course - be the Crunchy Frog show on thursday Oct. 20th at NASA.
Nasa is located centrally in the middle of Reykjavik and is one of the
main stages of the festival. Here you can witness the magic splendor of
Junior Senior, PowerSolo and epo-555 in LIVE action. 3 great live bands
in their 3 different ways.
epo-555 will take the stage approximately at 10.30
pm as the first of the crisp acts (stage times are tentative at this
point). As usual we can expect an intense, beautiful and noisy
experience. After that it's time for PowerSolo at 11.20 pm. The
two railthin brothers and the Chickenman will just have finished their
tour of the UK, Germany and France, and should be ready to rawk the
Reykjavik rock-a-billys and rock-a-bellas. Finally Junior Senior
will finish the show at about a quarter past midnite with their groovy,
funky - let's just admit it - kick ass new live band. It will surely be
a night to remember!

times have been on layovers on trips to the US, and both are well
