A 15 member group of femcees is what makes up Reykjavíkurdætur (the daughter of Reykjavík), Iceland’s only female-led rap group. Their 2016 debut album RVK DTR – featuring standout single HÆPIÐ – takes on topics ranging from social injustice, inequality, feminism and politics. Known to perform solo, in pairs, trios and as a whole, each performance with Reykjavíkurdætur is a singular experience. If you want to see some Icelander’s spit, slam and rock out, then make Reykjavíkurdætur your ones to watch at Ballinlough.
“Their energy left lasting impressions on the fans that will linger in the city throughout the whole festival; maybe even longer.” – Columbia Covers Icelandic Airwaves
