Iceland Airwaves is an award-winning multi-genre music festival that takes place in Iceland‘s beautiful and vibrant capital, Reykjavík. Each year in November, music lovers and adventure seekers from all over the world gather in the city for three days and nights of music in venues across downtown Reykjavík.
This March 16, Iceland Airwaves will bring its unique flavor of Nordic charm to SXSW, showcasing four of Iceland’s best up and coming artists at the Austin showcase festival. Acts performing include pianist and post-classical composer Eydís Evensen, musical prodigy and Ásgeir collaborator Arny Margret, dream pop and indietronic bopmakers VÖK, and newcomers from the indie-folk outfit LÓN.
Returning to SXSW for the first time since 2013 where the festival showcased Ólafur Arnalds, Sóley, and Ásgeir, the festival aims to showcase yet again a hand-picked selection of Icelandic rising stars. Record in Iceland, Iceland’s 25% refund scheme for music recorded in Iceland, will invite guests for pre-drinks at 7 PM.
