The music festival Iceland Airwaves will take place in Reykjavík November 4 - 8.
It was first held in 1999 and has become one of the premier annual showcases for new music Icelandic and otherwise in the world.
Some of the worlds most exciting artists have performed there, too. The Shins, The Rapture, TV On The Radio, Florence and the Machine and Fatboy Slim. Including Icelandic bands such as Björk, Sigur Rós, FM Belfast, GusGus, múm, Of Monsters and Men.
Iceland Airwaves is more than just music
. Reykjavík is quite possibly the perfect festival city small enough to be welcoming, sophisticated enough to offer cultural, historical and nightlife diversions to rival cities ten times its size. Maybe twenty.
