Oktoberfest SHÍ 2022

Dear students,
After two years of waiting, it’s finally happening: SHÍ’s Oktoberfest will take place for the 18th time, on September 1.-3rd on the lot in front of the University of Iceland.

Pre-sale starts tomorrow, Tuesday August 9th at 12:00 on tix.is, and you can grab a ticket at a special pre-sale price here: https://tix.is/is/event/13754/oktoberfest-shi/ 

Note that a limited number of tickets are available in advance, but after that the ticket will cost 9.990 ISK for university students and 12.900 ISK in general sales. It will also be possible to buy a beer card upon presentation of a valid ID.

Every university student can buy a ticket for the festival. The age limit for the festival is 20 years with the exception of showing your valid student card at the ticket desk, if you are under 20. The Student Council of the University of Iceland would like to emphasize that students under the age of 20 are not permitted to buy alcoholic beverages at the festival. 

 We’re looking forward to seeing you at Oktoberfest!
