Island Festival

Festival on a volcanic island

The weekend before the first Monday in August is known locally as the festival weekend in Iceland. The biggest festival is Þjóðhátíð (Thjodhatid), which is located in Westman Islands, a cluster of islands outside of the south coast of Iceland.  Heimaey is the only inhabited island with roughly 4.200 people living there. During the festival, the islanders grow in numbers when about 16.000 people flock to the island for a weekend of fun. When spending four days at a festival on a small volcanic island in the Atlantic ocean, protective clothing is crucial. Through the decades, the Icelanders who attend this festival, have developed "the Icelandic festival uniform", a certain attire that is a combination of outdoor clothing, wool sweaters, and fisherman workwear.

Below we've made some great style suggestions for this year's festival.

Dyngja fleece tops and joggers are a new addition to the Dyngja Capsule. It's made in Polartec Microfleece that keeps you comfortably warm, quick-drying and allows air to flow freely.



Capsule inspired by a range of products that were produced by 66°North in the '90s. The original Kria garments are renowned for their durability, and to this date can still be found in the wardrobes of Icelandic homes.⁠ This capsule includes an update of Kria jacket, a nineties favorite, now in Polartec® Neoshell® a highly technical, breathable and waterproof fabric.
