Back to Iceland Airwaves, the annual showcase and industry festival is celebrating its 25th year of bringing Reykjavík alive with the sound of music. Over the course of three days and nights, Iceland Airwaves transforms the entirely of the city centre into festival central, with several venues hosting the official festival lineups and all sorts of other spaces hosting off-venue gigs to keep spirits high during the daytime hours.

Festival passes, day passes and travel packages are available now — get yours before the prices inevitably increase as the festival approaches.
