It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of Sigur Rós to Iceland Airwaves! It’s been 11 years since Sigur Rós last performed at Iceland Airwaves, after coming to international prominence with their second record ‘Ágætis Byrjun’. In their first hometown show for four years, the band will close the festival with a performance at the new Laugardalshöll Arena on Sunday November 4. Coming on the back of a globetrotting festival run, and set to feature an expanded 11-piece line-up, the show will see the band pulling material from their entire catalogue, including the forthcoming sixth studio album, ‘Valtari’.

How exciting is this?!

Tickets for the Sigur Rós special performance at Iceland Airwaves go on sale Wednesday May 16 at 12 noon GMT via www.midi.is.  They will be available at the special low price of 3,900 ISK to anyone holding an Iceland Airwaves ticket, on a single-ticket, first-come-first-served basis until July 16. Package deals with Icelandair will also be available from May 16.
