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.
