With an unbroken tradition spanning 15 years, this year’s announcement of the awards stands as a testament to our enduring commitment. The Kraumur music fund, a brainchild of the Aurora Foundation in 2008, stands unwavering in its mission to bolster the Icelandic music landscape and nurture burgeoning artists, with a distinct focus on emerging innovators. Operating seamlessly across local and global spheres, the fund harmonizes its efforts with various entities within Iceland’s vibrant music realm.
The Kraumur Music Series materializes as a jubilant continuation, a reverberation of applause and recognition for the outstanding endeavors and triumphs of the lauded nominees and victors. This celebration materializes at Mengi, a crucible of creativity and collaboration, where the Aurora Foundation finds an artistic partnership.

It pulsates with an array of artistic events, amplifies the resonances of the nation’s boldest musicians, and stands as a bastion housing artistry and melodic chronicles in its art and record emporium.
