The official programme of the Iceland Airwaves music festival kicks off today (a few off-venue performances took place yesterday), maintaining its nearly unbroken tradition since 1999 of presenting both established and emerging musical talents in Reykjavík. Held across multiple venues in downtown Reykjavík, the festival allows attendees to traverse short distances to experience a range of musical genres.

The lineup this year comprises various performers including Bombay Bicycle Club, Daði Freyr, and Hatari, alongside other international and local artists like Andy Shauf, Anjimile, Trentemøller, Mugison, and Bríet, bringing the total to 100 acts scheduled to perform throughout the festival.

Iceland Review has profiled some of the artists that will be performing at the festival this year, including Bríet, Mugison, and Önnu Jónu Son.

In addition to on-venue concerts, interested parties who have not secured a wristband can also attend various off-venue performances free of charge. For further information regarding tickets and the schedule, visit the festival’s official website.

“Iceland Airwaves shines a light on new talent, and is the place where you can discover new music, see your favourite artist play, and enjoy a unique festival experience within the backdrop of Iceland’s nature and Reykjavík’s renowned cultural atmosphere.”
