The first names for this year’s Iceland Airwaves line-up have been confirmed.

This year represents the 25th anniversary of Iceland Airwaves, a festival that has grown to reach international prominence. A vital new music showcase it blends globally renowned names with the best of Icelandic talent, acting as a superb launchpad in the process.

Returning to the streets of Reykjavik on November 7th – 9th, Iceland Airwaves is preparing to welcome Mercury nominated Clash cover star Shygirl, enigmatic South London indie rock three-piece bar italia, and the wonderful Saya Gray.

Rave tag-team Joy (Anonymous) will appear at the Icelandic event, joined by superb producer Anish Kumar.

But that’s not all: homegrown talent will also be represented, including Icelandic trio Inspector Spacetime, hip-hop pairing Úlfur Úlfur, and Reykjavik based composer Klemens Hannigan.

Ísleifur Þórhallsson, Festival Manager for Iceland Airwaves comments…

“We are incredibly proud to be celebrating not only 25 years of Iceland Airwaves, but 25 years of playing a key part in the careers of some of the world’s most talented artists…”

“Over the years we have seen many of our Airwaves alumni grow from strength to strength, often developing into some of the industry’s most acclaimed artists. It is an honour to continue to bring new talent to Reykjavik, and share our beloved Icelandic community with the world.”
