As the carnival of new music that is Iceland Airwaves approaches, the anticipation in the air is becoming palpable in Reykjavík. The festival pre-game is in full swing: there are posters all over town, the schedule and accompanying app have been launched, and the annual scramble for tickets that follows the inevitable “sold out!” announcement has begun.

In case anyone missed it, Iceland Airwaves have released the official festival schedule in the shape of this handy PDF.

After the big reveal of The Knife’s Iceland Airwaves performance last week, the festival has released 40 new additions for the 2014 edition.

Post-Set Breakdown With Highlands

by

We caught up with duo Logi and Karen of Highlands after their very first show at Harlem. They talk about their nerves after finally playing in front of a live crowd, how they met up and what it’s like starting up a new band. They have since played at Sonar Reykjavík and the “Stop” benefit concert, and will be playing at “Aldrei Fór Ég Suður” this weekend. This is part of a video series called “Post-Set Breakdown” in which we team up with Music Reach to interview musicians after their gig.
