We are very happy to announce that Iceland’s newest pop king will be playing at the festival: Daði Freyr!
After a short hibernation period, Iceland has opened its borders to foreign travelers and this means at Iceland Airwaves we can continue to plan the next edition of Iceland’s best festival (according to some very smart people at least).
Since performing at last year’s edition, Daði has ‘broken the internet’ with a winning combination of musical earworms, viral dance routines, genius film clips and customised sweaters.
Following petitions to crown Daði this year’s default winner, he went on to win Eurostream 2020, the virtual Eurovision finals held by top Eurovision experts.
Savvy music obsessives also admired Daði’s pop precision, with Hot Chip (Airwaves alumni and one ofDaði’s favourite bands) turning their hands to a killer reworkof “Think About Things”. His latest track “Where We Wanna Be“ (his second single in English) is also proving to follow suit, dominating radio airwaves and viral charts worldwide.
With Daði’s European Tour this Decembernext to sold out, where better to see him than at Iceland’s best music festival?
“I can’t wait to be performing again at my favourite music festival of all time,” states Daði. Though he’s attended for many times, and first performed in 2012, he maintains the magic still runs strong: “There is something special about Airwaves. Can’t wait to show you my new live set.”
