About Iceland Music
Iceland Music was formed in November 2006 as Útflutningsskrifstofa Íslenskrar Tónlistar (ÚTÓN), an export office created by various musical rights holders’ societies in partnership with governmental and private funds. In increasing access to information about Icelandic artists and collaborating with partners to promote Icelandic music abroad, Iceland Music increases the visibility of Icelandic music in the international sphere; Icelandic artists performed over 1250 international gigs in 2017 alone.
Within the music industry, Iceland Music organises marketing strategies for musicians and music businesses, and provides an essential one-stop resource for all interested parties.
Iceland Music achieves this end via a multi-strategy approach that includes building accessible, comprehensive databases, promoting Icelandic labels, bands and events, and providing information on Icelandic music to markets and the media. In this way, it encourages and helps Icelandic bands, PRs and record labels participate in events and festivals around the world.
Iceland Music is targeted at an international, English-speaking market and introduces Icelandic music, artists, labels, and festivals to a global audience. Social media plays an integral role in our English audience outreach, with Iceland Music maintaining active presences on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Spotify. Through these channels, audiences can stay updated with the latest happenings in Icelandic music of all genres; quarterly newsletters also provide direct-to-inbox information about happenings in the pop & indie, jazz & folk, and contemporary classical genres.
