MORE ABOUT ICELAND AIRWAVES
From the aircraft hanger to a town takeover, Iceland Airwaves is synonymous with championing both brand new and established acts from home and away. There’s a reason music lovers from over 50 countries have been flocking to Reykjavík from all over the world the past 20 years. Running hand in hand alongside the music, there’s plenty of opportunities to indulge in Icelandic cuisine, sample craft beers, make new friends, relax in hot pools and marvel at the Aurora Borealis.
Iceland Airwaves is also an invaluable opportunity to connect with musicians, agents, journalists, promoters and managers from around the world, building new relationships whilst celebrating some of the music world’s latest discoveries. Over the past few years a small but perfectly formed series of industry panels has been happening at the festival during the day. There will be more info to follow on Airwaves Talks soon.
Artist submissions for both Icelandic and international acts are open now, along with industry and media applications.
