Introducing the 22nd Annual Iceland Airwaves!

The world renowned event has been nominated for 2020 NME Awards’ Best Small Festival!

From November 4-7th, some of the greatest musical talent in the world will return to Reykjavík for the 22nd edition of Iceland Airwaves! Local and international artists will perform at concert halls, art galleries, churches, and rock venues throughout the city for four magical days and nights. 

Nominated as the world’s Best Small Festival at the 2020 NME Awards, Iceland Airwaves has an incredible line up in store for the 2020 fans that will travel from over 60 different countries to attend. Paste Magazine described the event as a “progressive festival experience in a picturesque, one-of-kind city with a lineup so mindfully curated that you’ll leave with everything you wanted and more.” Uproxx contributed to the conversation saying, “The result is something special, a festival that works not only to bring their local audience some rising artists that might not ordinarily visit the Northern Atlantic nation, but also as a spotlight for their own thriving music scene.”

Performers include local artists, such as 2019 MME award winner, Daughters of Reykjavík, as well as international artists, including Courtney Barnett. You can grab Early Bird tickets today, and for global festival goers, be sure to check out Iceland Airwaves’ special travel packages.

You can check out the rest of the lineup on Spotify, and be sure to tell us your favorite artist performing at Iceland Airwaves 2020 in the comments or on Twitter!
