With the full lineup announced and tickets selling fast, it’s now less than two months until the annual 101-wide party of Iceland Airwaves blows into town. We at the Reykjavík Grapevine are partnering once again with the festival in 2015, which means we’ll be bringing you a FANCY FEAST all kinds of festival-related COOL STUFF, like insider tip sheets to help build your festival schedule, mixtapes from artists and DJs, behind-the-scenes peeks, new music from everyone on the bill, chats with some of the incoming performers, and LOADS MORE WE HAVEN’T EVEN THOUGHT OF YET.
You’ll find below an epic 297-song Spotify playlist, drawn together by the festival, and made up exclusively of bands playing this year. So whether you wanna catch up on the latest tracks from established stars like Perfume Genius, Beach House and Ariel Pink or listen to up ‘n’ comers like LA Priest, East India Youth (he’s gonna make it this time, promise) or Sea Change, there’s an awful lot here to wrap your ears around.
Stay tuned for more from us in the coming days and weeks, starting with a look at some of the new Icelandic bands who’ve emerged this year to play Airwaves for the first time in 2015.
Tickets for the festival are on sale now.
