Immerse yourself in music's creative future

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.

Expanding over the years, for its 20th anniversary edition this year, Iceland Airwaves is getting back to its roots, putting on shows 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.
