Iceland Airwaves will be held for the 20th time from November 7th to 10th 2018 in Reykjavík . .
Iceland Airwaves is an annual music event that started out in 1999 as a talent show for foreign record company executives, since then Airwaves has grown and blossomed and is now an integral part of the cultural life in Reykjavík. The festival attracts approximately 2.000 people from abroad annually (over half of those from the music industry) to sample the freshest sounds, foreign and domestic, some in the search of fresh talent, others for inspiration and yet others seeking adventure on the arctic circle. More that 50 acts from 15 countries join what’s already a massive line-up for the festival’s 20th Anniversary edition!
Natalie Prass, Nadine Shah, Stella Donnelly, Eivor and special concerts from Ólafur Arnalds and Högni have just been announced along with buzz-fueled acts and homegrown talent.
