From hipster indie acts to geysers to after-parties, Iceland Airwaves remains a solid bet for a cold-weather festival. Iceland Airwaves has come a long way since its inception in an airplane hangar at Reykjavík Airport. Nowadays the festival is regarded as the biggest celebration of music in Iceland and boasts an unrivaled line-up of established and up-and-coming artists.

From concerts in tiny record stores and art museums to cool bars and beautiful churches, Airwaves-goers can expect to soak up the festival atmosphere in some of the city’s most unique venues. And it’s not just about the music; there will be plenty of opportunities to indulge in yummy Icelandic cuisine, sample the local beer, make new friends, relax in the hot pools, and marvel at the aurora borealis.

There’s a reason music lovers flock to Reykjavík from all over the world, so come and join them for 5 days of festival magic.
