Sigur Rós to headline Iceland Airwaves 2012

Iceland Airwaves is proud to announce that Sigur Rós will be returning to the Iceland Airwaves festival  for the first time in 11 years with a special performance.  Sigur Ros first performed at the inaugural Iceland Airwaves after coming to international prominence with their album 'Ágætis Byrjun'.

This year’s performance will be their first in their hometown of Reykjavik in four years and will close the festival.  It will take place on Sunday, November 4  at the new Laugardalshöll Arena.   It will be a welcome homecoming after a summer and autumn worldwide festival run, and is set to feature an expanded 11-piece line-up.  The show will feature material from their entire catalogue, including the forthcoming sixth studio album, 'Valtari'.
