Iceland Airwaves may have ended on the sixth of November, but we’re still recovering from the havoc Reykjavik, the capital city, wreaked for five straight days of nonstop music and trying to get our ears to stop ringing. Don’t get us wrong, we loved every minute of Iceland’s annual music festival.
We’ve used this time to collect our thoughts and identify all the bands we saw play (it’s hard to keep track when you’re running from venue to venue, Viking vendor to Viking vendor) and local venues we fell in love with.
While we won’t bore you with a recap, we will make you sit down to go through our Iceland Airwaves photo album full of our favorite moments from our trip to Reykjavik—from the night we accidentally walked into a scream metal show to the secret Of Monsters and Men gig we stumbled upon to Reykjavik’s awesome ancient theatre we discovered along the way.
See you at Iceland Airwaves 2017, Reykjavik.
