The Joey Christ Show


  • Friday 16 00:00 - 00:40


Leader of the Icelandic hip-hop pack delivers a Sónar Reykjavík special

Stepping on the scene as a solo artist in the summer of 2017, Joey Christ immediately made his presence known. “Joey Cypher”, his first solo song after earning his reputation alongside long time collaborator Sturla Atlas, became one of Iceland’s biggest hip-hop songs ever and firmly established a new era of collaboration in the scene.

Often praised for his ability to bring people together, Joey has since been donned the glue in Iceland’s prolific hip-hop scene. His self-titled debut album was a culmination of those efforts, one that is now nominated for hip-hop album of the year at the Icelandic Music Awards. The Joey Christ Show intends to do the same, celebrating Joey’s top picks from the scene, along with his portfolio of bangers and new material.

Guests can expect a host of special guests and a special sonic and visual experience as Joey Christ steps on the Sónar Reykjavík stage for the first time. Guests will include Birnir, Lexi Picasso and Krabba Mane.
