The biggest names in Icelandic music gather this weekend for Iceland Airwaves’ Live From Reykjavík Festival.
The pandemic may have put a stop to live music, but the people behind the festival say that the show must go on!

Performances will take place in iconic Airwaves venues across Reykjavík such as Iðnó, Gamla Bíó, ART Museum Reykjavík and more.
