When Is It?

The festival takes place on three days - Thursday July 10th, Friday July 11th and Saturday July 12th, 2014. The music will run from 7pm to 2am each day (exact times subject to change) with around 25 acts set to play live across the two days.

Where Is It?

ATP Iceland will be held at Ásbrú, the former NATO base in Keflavík, Iceland. The former NATO base dates back to 1941 and the last US military personnel left in 2006. The site is located only 5 minutes away from Iceland's main international airport, 15 minutes from the famous Blue Lagoon and 30 minutes from Reykjavík. The festival site will host two indoor stages and a cinema with films picked by ATP and the bands, as well as the usual ATP extracurricular activities like DJs, Pop Quiz and much more. The capacity for the intimate festival is just 5000 people.

Origins Of The Word Ásbrú

Ásbrú is the bridge that the old Nordic gods, the Aesir, built between Midgard, home of men, and Asgard, home of the gods, and can be seen from the earth as the rainbow. One end of Ásbrú is in the heavens, at Himinbjörg (Sky Mountain) where the god Heimdall lives.

Ásbrú is strongly built, but it will nonetheless crumble at Ragnarok, the end of times, when the evil sons of Muspell will cross it. According to the Nordic mythology the red colour of the rainbow (Ásbrú) is a fire that burns in the sky. The fire prevented the ice trolls and mountain ogres to cross the bridge.

Daily the Aesir ride across Ásbrú to Urdarbrunnur, the well of Urdur, which is where the gods hold their court. Urdarbrunnur is located under the roots of Ash Yggdrasil, the world tree. The three witches of fate, Urdur, Verdandi, and Skuld, live at Urdarbrunnur. Thor, god of thunder, can not cross Ásbrú so he must cross mighty rivers to reach his destination at Urdarbrunnur.

Life on a NATO Base - Exhibition guided tour:

At ATP Iceland we will offer a guided tour to the exhibition 'Life on a NATO Base' that focuses on the everyday lives of U.S. soldiers and their families during their tour of duty at Naval Air Station Keflavik (NASKEF), Iceland.

For over half a century, more than 200,000 U.S. citizens lived and worked at NASKEF along with thousands of Icelandic employees That is a high number considering that the Icelandic population is barely more than 300,000.

The gates to NASKEF were closed in September 2006, marking the end of an era. The exhibition is a beginning of a conversation that looks at different cultures and how they coexisted during this time.

The exhibition opened in May 2013.
