From the ashes of Oration, we give you Ascension.
Oration and Studio Emissary are proud to present Ascension MMXIX, our
rebirth into the festival arena. Very much so the spiritual successor
to Oration, the Ascension festival aims to offer an eclectic and
esoteric experience, with a strong emphasis on Icelandic and
international Black metal.
The festival will take place at Hlégarður in Mosfellbær, June 13 - 15
(Thursday - Saturday). We're delighted to have secured this venue, as
it provides the perfect setting for our mid-summer celebration.
Located just outside the city limits, the venue and adjacent campsite
area are within close range of all needed services and amenities,
while providing a serene natural setting surrounded by mountains and
the desolate, unearthly landscapes Iceland has come to be known for.
Mosfellsbær, the town where the venue is located, is a suburb of the
greater Reykjavík area and is approximately a 20 minute drive from
Reykjavík city-centre, or a 35 minute bus-ride via public transport.
The option of taking a shuttle bus will also be available, along with
the optional use of a camping site located 5 minutes walk from the
In stark contrast to Oration, Ascension is a mid-summer event, giving
you a chance to witness first hand the arctic phenomena of the
Midnight Sun. Join us in this jubilant celebration of Ascension.
