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.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
