“A three-day music festival where local and foreign musicians of all ages and with diverse backgrounds come together to create music under the inspiration of Icelandic nature. Extreme Chill will be a mystifying journey around electric Reykjavík.”
About - In August 2009 Stereo Hypnosis held a release concert in Hellissandur (Iceland), a village on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. That is when the idea to locate the music festival at Hellissandur saw the light of day.
One year later Extreme Chill Festival - Undir Jökli (under the glacier), was held the weekend 6-8 August 2010.
