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, May 21 - 23 (Thursday - 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!
