We’re going to be working with Iceland Airwaves for the first time this year – they’ve just added Stefflon Don and Aldous Harding

The festival takes place across two sites in Iceland in November, and Loud And Quiet is excited to announce we'll be there

A host of new names have been added to the bill for this year’s Iceland Airwaves festival.

Aldous Harding, Stefflon Don and Mahalia join a line-up that already includes Fleet Foxes (playing two shows), Benjamin Clementine, Kelly Lee Owens, JFDR, Shame and loads more.

We’re also delighted to announced that Loud And Quiet will be working with Iceland Airwaves for the first time in 2017. We’re lucky enough to already be partners with two festivals we really admire, and this makes number three.

This year the event has expanded to two sites for the first time. It’ll take place in Reykjavík and Akureyri between 1-5 November.

Along with the international editions, today the festival has also confirmed a number of new Icelandic acts who’ll performing, including Milkywhale and Pink Street Boys.
