It’s exciting that Reykjavíkurdætur, and 72 other acts, have been added to Iceland Airwaves

This will be good

Iceland Airwaves have just announced 73 new additions to this year’s festival.

Top of that list are Reykjavíkurdætur, the dozen-strong all-female hip-hop collective, along with the likes of Flamingods, Hare Squad and Sóley.

All the new additions can be found on the Iceland Airwaves website.

Names already confirmed for the event include IDER, Pinegrove, Pale Honey, GusGus and Fazerdaze.

Lost Horizons, the project featuring Simon Raymonde of Cocteau Twins and Bella Union, will also perform.

The festival, now in its 18th year, has already confirmed artists like Benjamin Clementine, Kelly Lee Owens, Sigrid, Arab Strap, Songhoy Blues, Fleet Foxes and Aldous Harding.

It’s all happening between 1-5 November 2017.
