The Reykjavík music scene is bursting with great bands, from múm and FM Belfast to Hjaltalín and Sin Fang Bous. In the summer of 2009, Árni Rúnar thought it was worth celebrating this abundance of talent and started to plan a gathering of bands in his own backyard. He bought recording equipment, invited all the neighbours round and prepared pizza, cupcakes and pancakes. Imagine Árni's surprise when the idea took on a life of its own and some of the most thrilling Icelandic musicians of his generation ambled along to play and enjoy the afternoon! Backyard captures the joy and music of an inspired event. Could the same thing happen in Glasgow?. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Music and Film Festival.
