The official Airwaves site posted an announcement
revealing the first batch of musicians slated to perform this year at the festival.
Of the international breed we bring you Syrian music legend Omar Souleyman, Electronic producer Gold Panda (UK), Swedish Voodoo rockers Goat, shadowy synthesizer enthusiast Fatima Al Qadiri (KW), church organ magician Anna Von Hausswolff (SE) and melodic noise punks No Joy (CA).
On the Icelandic front we proudly announce the recently reinvented Hjaltalín, charming Pascal Pinon, musicians of robust pop Valdimar, folk-pop outfit Tilbury, dub-reggae supergroup Ojba Rasta and black metal extremists Momentum.
The Airwaves crew adds that if you are a musician - or possibly just know someone in a band - applications are open
to play Airwaves.
The first round of scheduled artists to perform at this year's Iceland Airwaves music festival has been revealed.
