The third announcement for Iceland Airwaves has just been made and as usual features an eclectic array of acts. Appearing this year are British band Throws featuring Mike Lindsay & Sam Genders, both members of folktronica act Tunng, Louisiana rock ‘n’ rollers Seratones and a blast from the past with old skool rappers Digable Planets.
Homegrown bands showing the rest of the world how it’s done include JDFR of Samaris fame, hard rockers Solstafir and a band that I’ve long been saying are the best in Iceland, the darkwave industrial overlords Legend.
Another few months so until we are digging out the leather jackets, gloves and hats and heading north to check out the best Iceland has to offer.
