Get ready for Iceland Airwaves 2013 – the biggest yet!

The City of Reykjavík is set to receive thousands of guests who’ll be flying in from around the world to experience Iceland’s biggest music event - Iceland Airwaves.

The festival, which started as a one-off gig in an airplane hangar back in 1999: showcasing only 5 bands, is now firmly established as one of hippest events on the international music festival calendar and has the reputation of showcasing international talent and breaking new acts. Headlined by legendary German band Kraftwork, this year’s Airwaves will host over 200 bands, including 62 international bands, and around 167 from Iceland. The event is now sold-out; however those without passes can still look forward to the massive off-venue programme, which features over 600 shows at 48 off-venues across the city. 

Here's is a clip to get you in the Airwaves mood.
