Eldhús: Little House of Music will be positioned in the heart of Reykjavik, and is the smallest gig venue in the world with a capacity of 5 people including the band. The off-venue will act as a platform to showcase the best in Icelandic music talent and cultural influence.

Over four days the 16 artists including Olafur Arnolds, SÓley and Valdimar will perform intimate gigs to an audience of two inside the house. These concerts will be live streamed online to a global audience and on a large screen to festival-goers in the centre of Reykjavik.

The house acts as part of a wider campaign from Inspired by Iceland welcoming submissions for a name that better describes the island. Each artist or band has shared the name they think better represents Iceland. Names included 'BarbaraStreisland' from musician Hermigervill, Country-That-I-Love-The-Most-Land from singer-songwriter Sóley and Best-Place-To-Grow-A-Beard-Land from Prins Póló.

Hermigervill is one of Iceland's most innovative electronic musicians and contemporary artists:

' Iceland is like one big family. Everyone on the music scene is friends with everyone else and we all work and collaborate with each other. The country is conducive to creativity and making music.'

Visitors to the house will be encouraged to contribute their own names and stories, which will be displayed at Eldhús and shared on Inspired by Iceland's social channels.
