Iceland Airwaves 2015

Peeps, here we go again. Iceland is getting darker these days but Iceland Airwaves will light up and warm your hearts and ears. It’s very exciting to see this northernmost capital get ready, music lovers arrive, bands are strolling around the city, the people from KEXP are getting ready for their beautiful broadcasting in Kex Hostel. You can feel the vibrant air and the good mood of everybody who is around. We can’t wait to see all this international acts, as there are not many of them coming during the non-festival months. There are the big names like Beach House (Sat Nov 7th, 22:10, Harpa Silfurgerg), Father John Misty (Thur Nov 5th, 0:00, Harpa Silfurberg), John Grant And The Iceland Symphony Orchestra (Thur Nov 5th, 20:00, Harpa Eldborg), Mercury Rev. (Thur Nov 5th, 22:30, Harpa Silfurberg), Perfume Genius (Fri Nov 6th, 22:10, Harpa Silfurberg) , Bianca Casady and the C.I.A. (Fri Nov 6th, 22:30, Harpa Norðurljós), Battles (Sat Nov 7th, 23:50, Harpa Silfurberg) and Låpsley (Sat Nov 7th, 22:50, Reykjavik Art Museum).
