Reykjavik's biggest music festival brings together international acts with Iceland's homegrown for an unforgettable weekend
Despite the ominous day the volcanoes in Iceland started erupting, ‘every (ash) cloud has a silver lining’, and with them, they bring: Iceland Airwaves. The world’s only truly unique festival brings us daytime lagoon parties in hot springs whilst live bands and DJs play at night in Reykjavik’s finest venues.
Electronic acts Robyn, Moderat, Silver Columns and Factory Floor will be joining the likes of Mount Kimbie, Everything Everything, Hurts, Joy Formidable, Hercules & Love Affair, and Alex Metric under the Northern Lights this October. With Germany’s ambient electronic trio Moderat and South Carolina multi-instrumentalist Toro Y Moi. UK's synth-pop Silver Columns and Factory Floor. Finally from FInland, the three-piece, boy baiting female electro-pop band Le Corps Mince De Francoise. Whilst Iceland's own Rökurró, authentic Reykjavik hip hop act Diddi Fel and melodic post-rock from For A Minor Reflection make their highly anticipated appearances. Full line-up here.
