Every year the award-winning List í Ljósi festival celebrates the return of the sun to a remote, East Iceland fjord. During the final two days of darkness, the town of Seyðisfjörður turns off all of its lights and welcomes a selection of international and national artists to illuminate the wild landscape with contemporary artworks, on a thrilling scale.
Alongside the unique outdoor exhibition, this renowned, free festival attracts visitors and participants from across the globe to experience a week-long program of international film screenings, performances, talks, panels and events to both generate and gather a creative community.
