See you on Ljosanott (Night of lights) 2019!

Hello everybody!

I will be having an exhibition on Saturday the 7th of September at Veghus, one of the beautiful old houses in town, at Sudurgata 9, the part that looks out to Ranargata.

Opening hours are estimated from 1 PM until 10 PM depending on how festive people are, because as you all know, time is an flexible concept!

Looking forward to seeing you all and experience with you one of the greatest Town festivals in Iceland :D

Kind regards, Geirthrudur

About the festival

Ljósanótt or Night of lights is a yearly town festival in Reykjanesbae (near Keflavik international airport) and is always held on the first weekend of September. Everyone comes together, the locals, former residents come back to celebrate their roots, guests of all ages come to say farewell to summer.

This weekend offers a variety of shows, concerts and entertainment for all ages, and the "World famous" (in Iceland at least), Night of lights fireworks show on Saturday night appeals to the child that resides within us all.

It is a wonderful moment to see the lights slowly light up the cliffs (near Duus restaurant and small boat harbor), representing that the days are getting shorter and the time for candle lights, shimmering stars and northern lights has arrived.

The festival formally sets on 4th of September and lasts until the 8th of September.
