Pre-filmed songs for the online streaming will come from For A Minor Reflection, Retro Stefson, Gus Gus and Hjaltalin.
Inspired By Iceland is a tourism campaign that was set up to help promote Iceland after the number of visitors to the country dropped due to the recent Eyjafjallajokull volcano eruption. The campaign intends show the rest of the world that Iceland is still a safe place to visit and is more alive than ever.
