Brought to you by the team from Iceland Airwaves music festival, the line up reflects the creativity, dynamism and diversity of Iceland’s thriving music scene, and offers some well needed levity at this end of the year.
The festival features both internationally established acts and artists on the rise. Of Monsters and Men will perform a dazzling set in an intimate setting. Ólafur Arnalds will premiere a special show in support of his just released album ‘some kind of peace’.

EmilíanaTorrini makes a welcome return, joined by friends Tina Dickow, Markéta Irglová, Pétur Ben and Helgi Jonsson performing each other’s songs in an intimate set.
Performances will be captured across iconic Airwaves venues such as Iðnó, GamlaBío, ReykjavíkArtMuseum, Hafnarfjörður’s Bæjarbíó and more.
