The annual musical paradise that is Iceland Airwaves ended earlier this week and as always Guerrilla Candy pal Vinyl Lane Jeff (from the excellent Life in the Vinyl Lane) was in beautiful Reykjavik to take in all the action.
Iceland Airwaves 2014’s official program (aka the ticketed portion of the fest) featured more than 200 artists spread out over five days. Add in the 675 shows at 52 different off-venue locations (aka shows you don’t have to pay for) and you are literally surrounded by amazing live music for almost an entire week. I told you it was musical paradise.
This year’s festival included sets by The Flaming Lips, The War on Drugs, Caribou and other notables but as always is the case with Airwaves, the festival’s shining star was the Icelandic music scene. Check out Jeff’s highlights from the five days of musical bliss that is Airwaves and read all about some of the best Iceland has to offer.
