The dust has barely settled on last November’s event but already the first line up announcement for Iceland Airwaves 2016 has been made. Dorset lady PJ Harvey is Reykjavik bound and will be joined by Julia Holter from California and the recently reformed English band Lush.
Joining them will be Icelandic acts Axel Flóvent, GKR, Mammút,Sturla Atlas, Mr Silla and the much hyped all female group Reykjavíkurdætur.
There’s also a very intriguing collaboration in store between local legends múm and the famous Kronos Quartet based in San Francisco.
Of course this is only the tip of the iceberg and many more announcements are yet to come.
Ticket for Iceland Airwaves 2016 are already on sale.
