Hear all the Tellers! A very popular event at the festival. Here is the first ever online version,

where you can hear all the MC’s as well as all the featured Artists. There are a few surprise appearances too…see if you recognise any of them. Stories range from how the storyteller got revenge on the king, to a mad Icelandic invention way ahead of its time…

Join all the featured Artists as they introduce themselves and bring us into another place with their tales and merriment.

From how a herd of fine cows first came to Iceland, to songs of a mythical disease, and of knowing a place. There may be a few more people you recognise, saying hello!
