Atmospheric is just one word to describe the second venue within Harpa. The production level of Iceland Airwaves is no longer in the stratosphere, but in the exosphere, and this year it should be out of this world. This isn’t your typical band-at-a-bar kind of site; this is a fusion of production and performance. Don’t expect anything less than the best at Harpa, or you’ll be space junk.
Legendary shows: John Grant, Of Monsters and Men, Mugison (2011), Ásgeir Trausti, The Barr Brothers, Shearwater, Ólafur Arnalds (2012).
