British punk veteran TV Smith, former member of the Adverts (and more than a handful of other rock acts from all over the world), will be bringing his gravelly voice and critical lyrics to the Dillon stage. While TV Smith is known for shattering ears since ’76, it looks like his weapon of choice as of late is simply an acoustic guitar (and his signature guns, displayed via tank top). Reykjavík locals Caterpillarmen will also take the stage that night, and will deliver prog rock with a bite, like chompin’ down on a crunchy leaf.
Trilogia is a new indie electro pop band, consisting of Finnbjörn Benónýsson and Fríða Dís Guðmundsdóttir (Eldar, Klassart). They’ve been hard at work on their first single, ‘Heartless’, which was released in the beginning of June.

Aragrúi was formed in 2011 and is a blend of folk, myth pop, dark indie and rock. We are a 4 piece band from the south of Iceland. When the band got together in august 2011 we started as a cute pop band but since then we have put a much rougher rock edge on our sound. We are always working with new sounds and we will be putting our first EP together for this winter.
Dream Wife started out as a fantasy… literally. Icelandic singer Rakel and British musicians Alice and Bella played their first show as part of a performance project at art school in Brighton. Stuck in dreams of 90’s club kid nostalgia they continue on making music, embracing their love for edgy pop. Dream Wife name David Lynch’s women as a big influence; “powerful and seriously fucked up”. They play with the aesthetics of the 1960’s ye-ye girls movement, along with current influences such as Sleigh Bells, Le Tigre and Grimes. Dream Wife ooze with girl power; infecting the crowd with their trademark “poolside pop with a bite.” The music juxtaposes simple pop hooks, beats, cutting riffs and dreamy vocals. As a collaboration with a gang of art school friends the world of Dream Wife is brought to life with vibrant live shows, pastel mania and flying pompoms. Join the gang, let’s dance till dawn.
World Narcosis palys a powerful blend of grindcore, black metal and pretty much everything else. They are fast, evil, and to the point. Their latest album ‘World Coda’ is bleak, intense and inherently unnerving, pushing their boundaries to the breaking point, raging from furious blastbeats topped with dissonant tremolo picking – to a spastic heaviness and explosiveness that sounds like the end of the world.
Sinmara is a Black Metal band from Reykjavík and Mosfellsbær featuring members of Svartidauði, Wormlust, Rebirth of Nefast and Slidhr. The band was formerly named Chao, and under that name the three track cassette ‘Spiritus Sankti’ was released in 2012 by Norwegian label Terratur Possessions. Musically Sinmara contrast chaotic aggression with haunting melodies and dramatic build-ups, with a focus on musicianship and attention to detail. Sinmara’s debut album, ‘Aphotic Womb’, was released by Terratur Possessions in the fall of 2014 to widespread acclaim. Sinmara is an experienced and respected live band, having played countless shows in Iceland and played their first concert abroad at Beyond the Gates Festival in Bergen, Norway late August 2014. Further live appearances in Iceland and abroad are planned in the near future, and Sinmara has already been booked for Inferno Festival, Nidrosian Black Mass in Belgium and Eistnaflug Festival.
