'Record In Iceland' Pays for Artists to Record in Country

International artists who record music in Iceland can now score a 25% rebate on all recording expenses – including travel and accommodation costs, along with studio rates and the cost of hiring an engineer.

Conceived by Iceland Music, the country’s music export office, the ‘Record In Iceland’ initiative covers any recording facility in the country, from Greenhouse Studios, where Kanye West once recorded, to Syrland Studio, where acts like Björk and Of Monsters & Men have reserved studio time. Additionally, the expenses they cover includes travel and accommodation costs, studio rates, and the cost of hiring an engineer.

Iceland, which has been ramping up efforts to attract tourism in recent years, has already seen success with a similar program for filmmakers and TV companies, which attracted major productions like Star WarsGame of Thrones and Thor.
