HIP Fest 2024

We are proud to welcome you to the 4th edition of the Hvammstangi International Puppetry Festival - Iceland´s one and only puppetry arts festival.
HIP Fest is a 3-day festival which celebrates live action contemporary puppetry in theatre and film, in the idyllic village of Hvammstangi. We actively promote rural artists and the rural artistic lifestyle, sharing the best puppetry the world has to offer with an audience that revels in welcoming them.
HIP is social. It lives in the present and shapes the future. It is a place for artistic gathering, to share skills, joy, food, art, and fun. HIP is a respite from the hectic, an opportunity to revel in the thunderous silence of Northwest Iceland.
The festival is held every two years. We are happy to announce the next festival is scheduled to take place 21-23 June 2024. Join us for workshops, performances, socials, and all things puppetry.
This years acts include:
Claudine Rivest (Canada)
Coriolis Object Theatre (Uruguay)
Studio Damúza (Czechia)

Mark Blashford (USA)
Handbendi Brúðuleikhús (Iceland)
Silent Tide (UK)
....and more!
Full programme announcements and ticket sales coming soon. 🙂
We cannot wait to welcome you to our small corner of the world.
Long live puppetry
