EVE FANFEST PRE-ADVANCE MIXERS at Mál og Menning & Lebowski Bar

Monday 2 May 19:00-23:00

We have had to change the Pre-Advance Mixers to different locations as was originally announced. Starting early in the week, we have teamed up with a couple of bars as a designated place to be to gather and socialize with your fellow capsuleers and developers to kick off the EVE Fanfest week. Mál og Menning will be the first location to get everyone started tonight. This former bookstore in the olden days became a live music venue and bar.

Tuesday 3 May (20:00-01:00)

Coming to the rescue at the last minute, who other than Lebowski Bar? They are definitely dudes in our books. If you make a bar that rocks based on a 1998 Coen brothers fill then it has to be good, and it is.

Thursday 5 May (11:00-12:00)

Eight years ago, the EVE Online Monument was first unveiled, it has stood through these years in mostly excellent condition. However, through weathering and time it was getting difficult to make out the most important part of the piece which is the names of the player characters which reside upon it.

For this year in collaboration with the Reykjavík Art Museum we have renovated the monument in the form of the tiles that hold the names being remade and have now been installed on the monument.

Please join us for a walk and a small ceremony from CCP and a ceremony hosted by the players to honor capsuleers who have now left us. We will begin at Ingólfur square at 11:00 and anticipate a 15-minute slow walk.

Please check the weather forecast on the day for appropriate clothing to not get too cold during the walk and ceremony.

The sign ups for teams will also take place from 14:00 - 16:00 at Laugardalshöll Arena in the registration area.

The group will leave timely at 18:30 from Harpa (not Laugardalshöll Arena). Please make sure that after the scheduled program ends in Laugardalshöll that you begin making your way immediately towards Harpa.

It is unlikely that you can make it there in time by walking unless you do so at an amazingly fast pace.
