Airwaves Announce Mercury Rev, Arca And Lots More - The Reykjavik Grapevine

Airwaves Announce Mercury Rev, Arca And Lots More

Published June 30, 2015

This year is passing so fast, huh? A minute ago it was new year, and now we’re already past midsummer…

With that in mind, the Airwaves festival will be here in no time, and today they unleashed another mouth-watering lineup announcement. The big news this time is the addition of dreamy alt-rockers Mercury Rev. Also eye-catching is the addition of Björk collaborator Arca, who’ll come along to DJ.

There’s also a raft of Icelandic additions, from all over the musical map. Grapevine favourites Grísalappalísa (who won our Best Live Band music award in 2013) are a must-see, as always, and we’re also super into the 80s style of bearded synth-pop maestro Berndsen, and the cinematic atmosphere of russian.girls, amongst many others.
