GusGus are one of the most sought-after and longstanding electronic acts from Iceland. Armed with a legendary, must-see live show that encompasses all the elements that they are known for, on stage GusGus extend their tracks and warp their soundscapes in a way that is unique to each performance.

World-renowned for their genre-defying style, an eclectic infusion of modern club culture and echoes of the past, they have remixed legendary acts such as Depeche Mode, Björk and Sigur Rós, and have consistently found increasing relevance within an ever-changing electronic music scene, carving their own fortune and.

GusGus’ career-path has been full of twists and turns: founded by actors in 1995, with musicians beginning to join shortly thereafter, the audiovisual collective’s travels have led through many alterations in style and a perpetually fluctuating line-up, consisting of more than 10 members at its quantitative peak. GusGus’ most recent form is that of a classic early 80s synth duo with Biggi Veira and Daníel Ágúst at the helm, which yielded the album Lies Are More Flexible, an emotional journey through a diverse mix of ambient, downtempo, progressive dance and neo-electronica with the attitude of 80s italo, in 2018.
