The festival is known for great range of electro music and its amazing location. Extreme Chill Festival was founded in 2009 and has since been growing rapidly. Bast asked Andri Már few questions about the festival and the playlist he just made for us.
Bast: Tell us about Extreme Chill Festival - What can we expect? Andri Már: This is the fourth time the festival is held, the festival has been getting more and more noticed and becoming more and more sealed in the Icelandic music scene. People seem too really love coming to this beautiful place which Snæfellsnes is and enjoying a weekend they will never forget. You can expect beautiful memories with great music and wonderful like minded people, in one of Iceland´s most special places Hellissandur. We are getting very exited about this years festival wich is looking very good.
Bast: Tell us about the playlist you just made for us? Andri Már: I picked some of the tracks I really enjoy at the moment, various genres, just some nice summer vibes.
Bast: Tell us about the weirdest party you have ever played at? Andri Már: The other week I was booked too play for a friend of mine at a birthday party for his girlfriend, the party was at this great Thai Restaurant in the suburbs, I ended up playing some very funny music for loads of drunken foreign people, it was loads of fun to find myself playing something I thought I would never play, the people had loads of fun, so mission accomplished for me and them.
Bast: It is Friday night and you just came to your favorite bar, what are you going to order? I would order a drink called Fidel Castro, wich is Rum, ginger ale, lime and loads of ice, it´s very fresh and has a summer feel to it.
Bast: What song makes you wanna dance? Andri Már: The 70´s disco groove monster track "Thousand Finger Man" by artist Candido, it always gets me moving.
