EVERYTHING you need to know about Wristband + Ticket Pick-up

GUYS! We are 7 days away from #airwaves14. Can you believe it!? Since we are expecting around 8000 psyched festival-goers + the ensuing crazy excitement, we thought we might prepare you guys and clear up some lingering questions regarding how to get your wristbands + tickets to the Jóhann Jóhannsson/ISO show and the Flaming Lips/The War on Drugs show.

Those with vouchers have two options:    

A. Take your midi.is voucher (confirmation e-mail) and photo ID to Brim (Laugavegur 71 or Kringlan Shopping Mall) and get a ticket. Please note that the name on the voucher has to match with photo ID. Then you can swap the ticket for an Iceland Airwaves wristband at our Media Center at Harpa, Austurbakki 2. This will get you your wristband a lot faster since we don’t have to look you up in our system. Great for you and us too!

B. Bring your midi.is or Icelandair voucher, along with a photo ID, to our Media Center. Please note that your photo ID HAS to match with the name on the voucher/confirmation. You can find our disclaimer here.

Regarding the Flaming Lips + The War on Drugs show: A limited amount of tickets for the closing show with Flaming Lips and The War on Drugs are on sale now here for 8900 ISK. However, an additional 2200 tickets will be available for Iceland Airwaves ticket holders at no additional cost. Tickets will be handed out on Friday, November 7 at noon at Harpa on a first-come-first-served basis. One wristband = One final show ticket. Find more info here.

Regarding the Jóhann Jóhannsson + ISO show: This performance is included in the Iceland Airwaves ticket price, but please note that there are a limited amount of tickets available for wristband holders. Tickets will be handed out to festival-goers on a first-come-first-served basis Thursday, November 6 at noon in the Media Center at Harpa. For those of you who want to guarantee your spot, the Iceland Symphony Orchestra is also selling tickets. Find more general info here.

Nanook (GL) Cancels IA Performance

We are sorry to announce that Nanook (GL) can no longer perform at Iceland Airwaves 2014. We will miss these Greenlanders, but hope to see them in the future!

However, there is some good news, too! Marius Ziska from the Faroe Islands will be playing in their stead. Check out their artist profile here.

The Off-Venue Program has dropped!

The Off-Venue Program is now available, and let us tell ya: it is GARGANTUAN and our biggest to date. There are 675 shows at 52 off-venues, so there won’t be even a second of boredom at Iceland Airwaves this year (as if that were possible!).


PS. Both the official and off-venue programs are now in the app! YAY!


Only 20 sleeps until Iceland Airwaves 2014!

The festival is now sold out, however, a few package deals with Icelandair are still available!
