The festival is held in Iðnó, a beautiful historical building. It was built in 1897 as a city theatre and reconstructed in its original form in 1997. It remains as it was in 1897, a testament to the grand vision of Iceland’s artisans. There is a wooden floor in main room that love the touch of your dancing shoes and on second floor (afternoon milongas) is a comfortable sprung vinyl floor. Iðnó is located right in the city centre at the bank of the Reykjavík pond. A wide selection of restaurants, hotels and guesthouses are in the neighbourhood.
