Tickets for the performances Björk will give at Airwaves are now on sale, and very limited.
As reported, the artist will be performing six shows in the new Harpa concert hall during Iceland Airwaves. As festival organisers describe the work, Björk’s show will “feature a range of specially conceived and crafted instruments, among them a bespoke digitally-controlled pipe organ; a 30 foot pendulum that harnesses the earth’s gravitational pull to create musical patterns – creating a unique bridge between the ancient and the modern and a bespoke gamelan-celeste hybrid. These devices reveal some of the physical processes that are the subject matter of the songs.”
Organisers now report that the performances will take place on 12, 16, 19, 22, 25 and 28 October, at Harpa. Doors will open 18:00 and the performances begin at 20:00. However, only 700 tickets will be made available per show.
Iceland Airwaves ticket holders do have a bit of an edge – 200 tickets will be given on a “first come, first served” basis at the 12 October and 16 October shows to those with Iceland Airwaves passes. For everyone else, tickets are 9,900 ISK for standing room or 12,900 to have a seat.
