From Iceland — Weapons at Iceland Airwaves

Weapons at Iceland Airwaves

Published October 14, 2009

Who are you? What can we expect from your Airwaves appearance, and what can we expect of you in general?
My name is Óli Dóri, and I play bass for the band Weapons. What you can expect from our appearance is that we will give it our best. And I will give it my best in general.     
What are some of the acts you’ll want to see at this festival, and why?
The Drums, I like their songs and I have heard that their live shows are awesome.
Are there any acts missing from the bill that you’d like to see on there?
Yeah I wanted to see The Japandroids on there.
Looking back, do you have a favourite edition of Iceland Airwaves? And if so, why?  
The 2004 festival was amazing! With two of my favourite bands The Shins and the Stills playing back to back.
A lot of our readers are first time Airwaves-visitors. Do you have any tips for them? What to see, what to do, what to avoid, etc? Where to buy records? Or a good place to grab a bite or get away from it all for a while? 
Go to Devitos Pizza at Hlemmur. It’s the best pizza place in the city.
Given that most Airwaves-visitors won’t have a lot of time in their schedule to see the Icelandic countryside, are there any nature-havens close by that you’d recommend?
Yeah, go to Öskjuhlíð! It’s the coolest place in the city.    
Has a lot changed in the Icelandic music scene since Airwaves 2008? How about Airwaves 2004?
Not much since 2008, but since 2004 there are much more bands around playing good music.
