Is it too early for us to start getting excited about festival season?
Nooo, of course now! So let’s get excited about this year’s upcoming events by checking out the first names to be revealed from the Iceland Airwaves 2016 line up!
This year’s festival will take place between the 2nd – 6th November, once again commandeering each and every corner of Reykjavík’s city centre to bring an eclectic line up of emerging and established artists to an audience of Icelandic and international music fans.
Previous editions of the festival have seen performances from the likes of Sigur Rós, Björk, Ólafur Arnalds and Of Monsters & Men, as well as international artists such as Kraftwerk, Beach House and the Flaming Lips.
2016 will see the festival continue to gather the finest international artists and present them alongside hand-picked artists from the thriving music scene of Iceland, with artists such as PJ Harvey, Julia Holter and múm with Kronos Quartet all confirmed to play!
Alongside múm, a host of other Icelandic artists have been announced to play, including Axel Flóvent, GKR, Mammút, Mr. Silla and two artists that truly caught the crowds at Iceland Airwaves in 2015, Sturla Atlas and one of MØ’s Nordic Playlist recommended acts Reykjavíkurdætur.
We’ll bring you more details as soon as they’re announced, but in the meantime, remind yourself of what happened when we invited the fantastic Àsgeir to perform live at the Nordic Playlist Radio Bar back in 2014…
