Quincy, MA, March 19, 2015 - Every Autumn, Iceland rocks a little louder! For the past 15 years Icelandair and Iceland Airwaves have teamed up to bring the hottest bands from Iceland, Europe, the Americas and beyond to the coolest setting on Earth: Reykjavik, Iceland. With today’s announcement, Iceland Airwaves 2015, running from November 4 – 8, is shaping up to be the biggest yet!
Since 1999, Iceland Airwaves has seen the likes of Florence and the Machine, The Flaming Lips, Sigur Ros, Fatboy Slim, Sinead O’Connor, Yoko Ono, Yo La Tengo and Kraftwerk in clubs and theaters throughout Reykjavik. This year, Iceland’s own Björk will headline with her second Airwaves appearance, plus performances from John Grant and the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, Father John Misty, Ariel Pink, The Pop Group, Perfume Genius and more. Top Icelandic artists scheduled to appear include GusGus, Mammut, Young Karin, and Soley. Additional acts will be announced in the coming months leading up to November.
Seeing these great acts and making new friends from across the globe in Iceland’s unique setting is just one part of the Iceland Airwaves experience. An Iceland Airwaves vacation package booked with Icelandair provides time to explore the small, yet highly sophisticated and welcoming capital city of Reykjavik with its rich, storied history and exciting nightlife. Plus, Icelandair’s exciting day tours allow one to move from city to nature with a relaxing dip at the Blue Lagoon, a trip through Iceland’s popular Golden Circle, a hunt for the northern lights, horseback riding, and more! Iceland Airwaves vacation packages, beginning with departures on November 5, 2015, and returning November 8, 2015, are now available to book at www.icelandair.com.
