The Reykjavik Arts Festival has been held since 1970 featuring an international selection of artists. Since 2004, the original bi-annual schedule of the festival was made an annual event held each May. This year it will be held from the 15 May to 5 June.
The festival takes in a variety of artists with music representative of classical, pop, jazz, opera, and world as well as visual artists, seminars, theatre and dance. Some of the highlights of this year's festival include Croatian Contemporary Art at Gallerí 100°, the Experiment Marathon Reykjavík at the Reykjavík Art Museum (RAM) organized by the Serpentine Gallery(London), and what sounds to be a fascinating performance by the Iceland Dance Company and The Norwegian Company of Contemporary Dance featuring choreography by Ina Christel Johannessen and music composed by two Icelandic musicians, Kira Kira and Hildur I. Gudnadottir, along with their German counterpart Dirk Desselhaus.
