The response to the brand new VIP upgrades was so strong that they all sold out completely in a matter of days.
A survey of previous festival attendees revealed that many guests were interested in an option allowing them extra benefits. The VIP upgrade cost 10.000 ISK, and the extra benefits included discounts on drinks at all official venues and off-venues, discounts on food in selected venues and restaurants, Cintamani clothing, Hertz car rentals, tours, merchandise, Icelandic goodies and more.
To ensure that the VIP experience wouldn’t impact negatively upon the experience of other festival goers, only 300 upgrades were released. Read more about what’s included in the VIP ticket here. The Iceland Airwaves team is thankful for the warm reception to this new feature of the festival.
While both VIP and Early Bird allocations are now exhausted, there’s still 4 day passes available for 19.900 ISK (ca USD $180 / €160). This year the 4 day pass allows you entry into all shows including performances from Fever Ray (SE), Ólafur Arnalds (IS), Cashmere Cat (NO), Alma (FI), Blood Orange (US), The Voidz (US), Superorganism (UK), Eivør (FO) and many others.
