Iceland’s largest music festival, Iceland Airwaves, announced the first acts of its 2024 lineup today. They include local acts such as Klemens Hannigan (of Hatari fame), Inspector Spacetime, and Úlfur Úlfur, as well as acts from eight other countries. The festival will take place in Reykjavík from November 7-9, 2024.

This year will mark Iceland Airwaves’ 25th anniversary. The first-ever Airwaves festival was held in an aeroplane hangar at Reykjavík Airport and was initially meant to be a one-off event. While it is 25 years since the festival was first held, it is not the 25th edition of the festival: Airwaves was called off in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first lineup announcement includes 9 Icelandic acts and, as usual, focuses mostly on up-and-coming local artists such as lúpína and K.óla. Foreign artists include Shygirl (UK), UCHE YARA (AU) and Saya Gray (CA).

The announced artists can be heard on the Iceland Airwaves 2024 Spotify playlist below.
