Event info

The festival has been postponed until November 10th to 13th 2021.


Oration and Studio Emissary are proud to present Ascension MMXX. 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, Nov 10th - 13th (Wednesday - Saturday). We're delighted to have secured this venue for the second year, 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 venue.

Ascension is a mid-summer event, giving you a chance to witness first hand the arctic phenomena of the Midnight Sun. Join us once again in this jubilant celebration of Ascension!
