Reykjavik Airport Hotels ( are expected to be full to bursting between the festival dates, as they are the most modern and comfortable in the city.

The Reykjavik Blues Festival is a tradition in the city nowadays, offering a huge opening ceremony, a choice of events and a final concert at the historic Free Church of Iceland. In between the musical events there’s a great deal to see and do in this unique environment and plenty of opportunities for a vibrant nightlife.
