Iceland Airwaves Postponed Until 2021

By Larissa Kyzer

This year’s Iceland Airwaves music festival will be postponed until 2021. Per an announcement on the Airwaves website, organizers “reviewed many scenarios: with social distancing; with lower attendance; with less venues” and came to the conclusion that “there was no feasible solution to deliver the festival safely.” Ticket holders for this year’s festival fear not, however: 2020 tickets will be valid for Airwaves next year.

The 2020 Airwaves lineup will stay in place for next year’s festival and includes an additional 25 new acts that were announced on Wednesday. International acts Crack Cloud (Canada), Porridge Radio (England), Balming Tiger (South Korea), and Faux Real (France/US) will play Airwaves next year, along with Icelandic favourites Bríet, HipSumHaps, GDRN, and “beloved troubadour” Mugison.

Those who will not be able to attend next year’s festival will receive a reimbursement for their ticket.
