The Blueberry-Muic-Festival, a classical Music Festival held in July/August every year for four days period, from Thursday to Sunday, in Ólafsfjörður, Fjallabyggð, about 60 km north from Akureyri. Black blueberries, called “aðalbláber”, grow in the beautiful valleys surrounding Ólafsfjörður. These berries are the inspiration for the name of the festival, which translates as the Blueberry-Music-Festival. The Blueberry- Music-Festival allows mainly Icelandic artists to perform evening concerts in the church as well as in the Cultural House Tjarnarborg which both are accoustically amazing venues.
