The Hafnarborg Songfest – Music Event of the Year

The Hafnarborg Songfest received the Icelandic Music Award 2021 for The Music Event of the Year (Festival), in the field of classic and contemporary music, but the Songfest took place for the fourth time from July 2nd until July 12th 2020.

The programme of the Songfest consisted of eight concerts, featuring outstanding singers and musicians, as well as courses for young and old, but we were so fortunate to be able to hold the festival without restrictions in the middle of the summer, when the Songfest normally takes place.

We are deeply honoured by this acknowledgement and would like to congratulate Guðrún Jóhanna Ólafsdóttir and Francisco Javier Jáuregui, the founders and artistic directors of The Hafnarborg Songfest, on their continued success, as well as thanking them for their noble efforts in service of music and culture in Hafnarfjörður in the past years.

The Hafnarborg Songfest will take place for the fifth time from June 19th until July 4th 2021.
