What to see and what to do at fanfest
Taking place at the incredible Harpa, this wrap-up will provide the cherry on top of your Fanfest experience. Our confirmed and scheduled acts will light the party fuse, ignite the fire within and fight off any cold that Iceland can throw at you!
Hold the door, can this be true?! DJ Kristian Nairn (Hodor from Game Of Thrones) will be honoring us with a performance to mark his first visit to Fanfest.
Sharing the headline slot will be the illustrious Permaband CCP’s in-house rock gods. You can expect a signature riotous performance of galactic proportions, worthy of Fanfest.
As if all of that wasn’t enough, we also have local party legend Hermigervill to keep pulses racing into the night.
Don't miss this legendary Fanfest finale!
We realize that not everyone coming to Iceland wants to discuss the intricacies of ship fittings or market dynamics.
We invite players to bring their wives, husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends, or just friends, to accompany them on the trip to Iceland and participate in this excursion that takes place during the Friday of Fanfest.
Not only that, but Sisters of EVE pass holders are invited to join in at the Party at the Top of the World on Saturday night!
Grab Iceland by its Viking horns. Sign up for your spot in the Sisters of EVE adventure.

"Q&A panels with developers are nice. Spending time with an early build of an upcoming game is fun. Talking with fellow fans can be entertaining. But can any of that really compare with the prospect of getting drunk off your ass in the company of the people who make one of the most unique MMOGs in the world?"
