    Question for anyone that's been (anyone besides BritChris?)...is there enough time during the day to explore the city and go on a couple excursions (blue lagoon!) during the festival or should I just add a couple days to the trip?

    I booked a studio apartment from Nov. 1-7 for around $700. Right in time, too, since everything seems obscenely expensive now except for the travel packages that include hotel.

    The Blue Lagoon is about 20 - 25 minutes outside of Reykjavik. You can pretty much do all of Reykjavik in one day, it's a nice city to walk around in. They have a few museums, but I didn't go in any of them.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Good to know. So I hear it will be a good time of year to catch the Northern Lights.

    This fest sounds awesome! Saw the northern lights in Tromso, Norway last Sept. When you are that far north you can catch them any time of the year depending on the atmospheric conditions.
