Watch this Iceland Airwaves documentary

Last year I spent some time in the beautiful country of Iceland and while there I attended the country’s annual Iceland Airwaves music festival. If you remember, I wrote a little bit about my Iceland Airwaves experience. And as a part of my Icelandic vacation I spent countless hours in Reykjavik’s bars, clubs, bookstores, concert halls, museums, coffee shops and record stores enjoying what the wonderful Icelandic music scene has to offer.

Reykjavik is a great city and Airwaves is a tremendous platform for the country to showcase its remarkably talented and diverse music scene. Check out the documentary above and you’ll get a partial feel for what the Iceland Airwaves experience has to offer. It doesn’t quite capture the full essence of Airwaves — that would be near impossible to do with a 20-minute documentary — but it does include lots of commentary from several of my new favorite Icelandic bands and shows some of what it’s like to walk the streets of Reykjavik surrounded by music. Enjoy!
