Get ready for Iceland Airwaves 2017!
The full line-up for Iceland Airwaves 2017 was just released and we are counting down the days! The festival, which takes place from 1-5 November, added to their schedule another 73 acts who’ll be joining headliners such Billy Bragg, Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes, Pinegrove and Emiliana Torrini. Celebrating its 18th year in the music-festival business, the event will also be heading into new territory with a significant portion of the action set to take place in venues in Akureyri – the northern capital of Iceland. This new destination element gives visiting music fans the opportunity to enjoy the festival in different ways with three ticket types:
- The regular festival ticket – one wristband for the schedule in Reykjavík.
- The Akureyri ticket – one wristband for all festival shows in Akureyri: 2 -3 Nov.
- The Akureyri ticket with the Reykjavik add-on. One wristband for all festival shows in Akureyri plus all festival shows in Reykjavík on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th November.
To help make things easier, Icelandair, the founding sponsor of the event, have put together two packages: the Iceland Airwaves package which includes flights to and from Iceland plus an Icelandair Airwaves Festival pass voucher, and the Iceland Airwaves Akureyri package, which includes flights to and from Iceland, domestic flights to and from Akureyri with a one-night stay (on 2. Nov) in a double standard room at Icelandair Hotel Akureyri, plus an Iceland Airwaves Festival voucher, valid both in Reykjavik and Akureyri.
Artists performing in Akureyri include Benjamin Clementine, Ásgeir, Emiliana Torrini and the Colorist, Daniel OG, Emmsje Gauti, Mammút, Alexander Jarl and Sturla Atlas.
