We here at Iceland Airwaves are thrilled to partner up with Faroese Music Export and British Columbia/Canada Music Export, and are announcing 6 exciting additions to our lineup!
The Faroe Islands, our dear cousins, are also from a remote island not everyone can place on a map. They do however have established themselves as a wonderful creative hotspot, churning out world-class artists.
Music Export Canada, our other northernly neighbours have been making waves over the past years with an impressive roster of talent, coming from the landmass beyond straight to the stage in Reykjavík.
Read about your new favourite bands below!
