We first saw Hatari back in their home country, Iceland, in 2016; the three-piece being both the first act we saw at Iceland Airwaves that year, and without doubt the most memorable.

Fast forward a few years and much has happened since then - the BDSM-inspired group infamously represented Iceland at Eurovision this year, where they protested Israel’s occupation of Palestine by flying the Palestinian flag in front of hundreds of millions of viewers live on TV. Shortly after this, Hatari collaborated with Palestinian queer musician Bashar Murad for something of a banger; 'KLEFI (صامد)' containing a deep underlying political message alongside a strong video.

The 405 were delighted to be welcomed to Hatari’s first-ever London show in front of their die-hard fans (who we very much stan; in the oppressive 32-degree heat they still camped outside in thick make-up and full BDSM gear). The show at The Dome in Tufnell Park was everything we hoped it would be and more - Klemens Hannigan, Matthías Haraldsson and Einar Stefánsson triumphantly succeeded in queering the venue. Bringing down capitalism may have to wait for another day, however.

Here are some behind the scenes images of Hatari and the joyous show itself.
