So what is this all about? Northern Marginal festival is a culture attack on multiple fronts and packed with the boldest sounds of Finland, the Finnish forest and some pretty unique films and music documentaries. The festival program consists of three independent sections: mømø [mːːøˑmø] , Syndrome and In the Icelandic Woods.
The music section, mømø, treats the Icelandic crowd to a diverse lineup of the reigning Finnish music genre’s together with local amazing talents in downtown Reykjavík where the bands will take the stage at clubs, in a church and by the pool. The lineup includes folk metal band Finntroll, black metal band Black Crucifixion, classically trained organist Pétur Sakari, multi talented musicians and DJ’s Jimi Tenor and Jori Hulkkonen and the punk explosion Räjäyttäjät! Miss this and you’ll be crying about it later!
