There's a load of other additions for the November festival, too
Last month HAM supported Rammstein in Iceland, and the gig was attended by president Guðni Th. Jóhannesson. That’s the kind of cool as hell place Iceland is.
Songhoy Blues and Michael Kiwanuka will also play the event held between 1-5 November.
Also confirmed in this batch of new additions to the line-up is Björk’s old band Tappi Tíkarrass, Torres, Deep Throat Choir and Vagabon.
These artists join a bill that already includes Fleet Foxes, Benjamin Clementine, Kelly Lee Owens, Shame and Stefflon Don.
This year the event has expanded to two sites for the first time. It’ll take place in Reykjavík and Akureyri.
Last year’s Icelandic Airwaves featured appearances from the likes of Björk, PJ Harvey, Warpaint, Mùm with Kronos Quartet, Dizzee Rascal, Julia Holter and Kate Tempest.
