Since the first show held in 1999 (in an airplane hangar), Iceland Airwaves has become one of the premier showcases for new music - Icelandic and otherwise - in the world. It's been called "the most innovative music festival since CMJ" and "as responsible for all of Reykjav¡k's recent positive press as Bj"rk herself".
There's more to Airwaves than music. Reykjav¡k is possibly the perfect festival city - small enough to be welcoming, sophisticated enough to offer cultural, historical and nightlife diversions to rival cities ten times its size. Maybe 20. And it's surrounded by some of the most unique and astonishing natural beauty you're ever likely to see. Roll out of bed, hose the party remains out of your hair and hop a bus. Before you can remember what you did the night before, you're looking at geysers, waterfalls, lava fields - all the best that a volcanic island has to offer, including the world-famous Blue Lagoon, favorite soaking spot of the international hung-over glitterati. Mmm! You can really taste the hipster!
