Wristband Pick-Up

The Iceland Airwaves Media Center is an indispensable part of the festival. Through the years it has been located at various bars/restaurants in downtown Reykjavík, in walking distance from all the festival venues.

At the Media Center, festival goers can pick up their festival passes, purchase Iceland Airwaves merch, annoy the staff with weird questions and hook up with other festival goers.

We’re expecting around 8000 eager festival-goers, musicians, press and music industry peeps to our Media Center to pick up their wristbands. It’ll be crazy busy and we’d like to be prepared and would like to prepare you guys as well! 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.
