At the same occasion the band will celebrate its 20th anniversary; 20 years have passed since the band was founded and subsequently won the youth music talent competition Músíktilraunir in 1992, a press release states.

All of the band’s original members will perform at the concert: vocalist and violinist Elíza Geirsdóttir Newman, bassist Ester Bíbí Ásgeirsdóttir, guitarist Sigrún Eiríksdóttir and drummer Birgitta M. Vilbergsdóttir.

A number of other musicians of nationwide acclaim will perform at the anniversary concert, including Gunnar Þórðarson, Jóhann Helgason, Magnús Kjartansson, Valdimar Guðmundsson and the bands Júdas and Deep Jimi and the Zep Creams.

Two concerts will be held on Sunday, at 4 pm and 8 pm, and both quickly sold out.
