Summer is over and school is back in session, which means the party is basically over. Well, not really, it’s just on a much needed hiatus before the biggest, wildest, messiest and most drunken five-day party of the year: the infamous Iceland Airwaves festival. It’s essentially the craziest weekend in Reykjavík you could imagine to the power of ten, five nights in a row. No sleep. The real fun of course is the music and this year’s line-up, booked under the new festival management of Grímur Atlason and the Iceland Music Export team, is already looking stellar. Robyn, The Antlers, Apparat Organ Quartet, Moderat, Slagsmålsklubben, Seabear – the list goes on. Up until the festival, we will be bringing you two interviews per issue with Airwaves artists (one foreign and one local!) so you can get all the dirt on the bands you love and find out about some new ones! Enjoy!
