Iceland Airwaves 2020

Reykjavík, Iceland


One of the few music festivals to have prematurely met the promised 50/50 gender split on lineups as part of the Keychange initiative, Iceland Airwaves have revealed the first names for 2020's edition.

Leading the names are indie four-piece Metronomy, rising soul duo Black Pumas, as well as a special solo performance from witty singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett

Of course, as a showcase for Iceland's burgeoning musical talent there's plenty of Icelandic artists from a diverse spectrum of genres, with other notable confirmations including a roster of indie and post-punk upstarts in Squid, The Murder Capital, and Dry Cleaning

There's still plenty more names still to be revealed, so stay tuned and check out the lineup so far in the video below:


Iceland Airwaves takes place in Reykjavik, Iceland on 4-7 November later this year. For further updates and announcements, join the Iceland Airwaves 2020 Waiting List.
