40 More Acts Announced For Iceland Airwaves
 

Anna Calvi, How To Dress Well, Sin Fang, Mugison and M-Band will play the 2014 festival

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

The announcement includes a fine selection of local artists, including Grapevine’s band of the year Sin Fang, the Ólafur Arnalds/Janus Rasmussen techno partnership Kiasmos, emerging nu-electronica maestro M-Band, and bearded musical polymath Mugison.

From abroad, the UK indie label Domino Records will send over two of their finest, with virtuoso guitarist Anna Calvi bringing her dramatic sound to Reykjavík, alongside label-mate How To Dress Well. They’re joined by Bella Union’s indie-psych band Horse Thief, Canadian noise-rock outfit Greys, electronic producer Eskmo, and Cascine Records’ retro pop trio Yumi Zouma.

We’ve assembled a Spotify playlist comprising some of the new additions for you to find out what’s coming your way this November:

Tickets for the festival are on sale, priced at 18,500 ISK, here.
