About The Project 

Dark Music Days approached Float PR wanting assistance to select three key journalists to attend and cover their festival. It was important to find the right media who would take a genuine interest in the festival and cover their experience fully. Float PR secured Classical FM, BBC3 Radio and Nylon Magazine.

About Dark Music Days

Dark Music Days, an annual festival of contemporary and new music, will take place during the darkest period of the Icelandic winter in Reykjavík from January 25-27 in 2018.

The festival was founded in 1980 by the Iceland Composers Society as a platform for Icelandic composers to present their work. Today the festival is a platform for performing and getting to know new music with an emphasis on new Icelandic compositions and performers in addition to international artists.

The Dark Music Days 2018 will present a cross section of pioneering contemporary music from both sides of the Atlantic. The focus lies on works with mixed techniques where the boundaries of contemporary music performance are explored.
