About this festival
Iceland Airwaves is an eclectic festival in Reykjavík. Similar to the famed South by Southwest, this festival showcases hundreds of acts ranging from unheard-of up-and-comers to headline status stars.
Spreading to the northern city of Akureyri for the first time last year, Iceland Airwaves takes over Reykjavík and Akureyri's downtown, taking place in everything from bars and bookshops to theatres and concert halls.
Set during the time of the year where Iceland gets only a few hours of sunlight, the festival is an unparalleled experience, turning the country into musical treasure hunt.
