MB ICELAND - VINTAGE CARAVAN HEADLINING FINAL ROUND


The Vintage Caravan will be appearing as special guests at the Wacken Metal Battle Iceland this year, which takes place in the Norðurljós hall at Harpa, Saturday 11th April. Tickets are now available!

 

The rock-tastic threesome have been conquering foreign audiences for two years after their triumphant Eistnaflug appearance in 2013, along with the Wacken Metal Battle afterparty in the same year. Thanks to the exposure they garnered, the band were signed by Nuclear Blast, the biggest metal label in the world, and kicked off multiple tours throughout Europe in 2013 and 2014. 2015 sees the band release their new album 'Arrival' and a plethora of festivals and tours.

 

The famous Wacken Metal Battle will take place prior to the Vintage Caravan's appearance on April 11th.

 

There will also be prizes in the Icelandic competition, including studio sessions with Studio Paradis, and Studio Fossland, gift certificates from Tónastöðin, Hljóðfærahúsið, Smekkleysa plötubúð, print work on drum heads by Merkismenn.

 

The Iceland Music Export office will also provide a travel grant for the winning band, as well as paying the way for the foreign press visitors, in cooperation with Wow Airlines.

 

The winning band from the last WMB in Iceland will also perform. That band is Ophidian I, and one of Iceland's most promising young bands, Aeterna, will open up the evening with a short set. Sounds pretty great, right? RIGHT.

 

All ages are welcome. Doors open at 17:30 - starts 18:00
