Canadian musician and superstar Neil Young is coming to Reykjavík this summer for a concert in July. Young will be accompanied by his band, Crazy Horse.
The concert is part of the All Tomorrow's Parties (ATP) festival. Barry Hogan is the frontman for the festival and he announces the event. Hogan has had a colorful career, but around the year 2000 he founded All Tomorrow's Parties, a music festival that has become well known around the world.
"An old dream comes true" said Hogan. "We have been chasing Young for years. And it is absolutely amazing to get Crazy Horse along as well. Neil plays with many people but it is unique to see him with Crazy Horse."
The ATP festival was held in Iceland last year with good success. Nick Cave and many others performed last year. This year Portishead will perform along with many other great bands.
