The organizers of ICE HOT Reykjavík are happy to announce that 350 applications were sent in by Nordic artists, by the deadline midnight GMT January 31st.

This is the largest amount of applications ever to be sent in by artists to perform at ICE HOT platforms. Each application will now be evaluated, first by a 3 member national jury in each of the 5 Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) and then by a Nordic jury, with one member from each Nordic country.

Ása Richardsdóttir, director of ICE HOT Reykjavík;

“We are thrilled by the strong interest from artists to come to Reykjavík and take part in Ice Hot. Seeing this large amount of applications is humbling and exciting at the same time. In addition to offering artists the opportunity to stage their work, artists can also present new artistic ideas or works in progress in our MORE MORE MORE programme. This is new. We look forward to the selection process ahead.”
