Second Announce: Blood Orange and more... - Iceland Airwaves

Second Announce: Blood Orange and more…

Following on from announcing Superorganism and Girl Ray, we are proud to reveal its second round of acts for 2018.

Taking place all across Reykjavík 7th – 10th November, the 20th Anniversary edition of Iceland Airwaves will feature Fever Ray’s boundary-breaking electronic laser show, welcoming Karin Dreijer back to the festival following The Knife’s unforgettable last live show in 2014. Joining Fever Ray is another inimitable iconoclast, Blood Orange, Finnish pop sensation Alma, Norwegian DJ and producer Cashmere Cat, US rockers The Voidz and Irish rapper Rejjie Snow plus 15 more acts from 11 countries. From closer to home, the new Icelandic additions include Axel Flovent’s acoustic folk, GKR’s technicolour RnB pop, Jóipé x Króli’s twisted fresh hip-hop, Vök’s electronic pop, Mammút’s indie rock and Hatari’s seen to be believed techno bondage metal show.

Iceland Airwaves has come a long way since its first incarnation in 1999. It’s now the world’s most northerly music showcase festival, and Iceland’s longest running festival. Celebrating its 20th year, Iceland Airwaves 2018 continues to highlight the world’s best new talent and forward thinking artists. Four days of non-stop music fills this charming city’s downtown venues, pubs, clubs and studios, all within easy walking distance of each other.
