Iceland's oldest music festival is celebrating 20 years of great musical moments by doing what they do best: showcasing up and coming bands.
Iceland Airwaves is an annual music festival held in Reykjavík, Iceland in early November. It spans four days (Wednesday - Saturday) every year and its main focus is showcasing new music: Icelandic and international.
The first show was held in 1999 as a one-off event in an airplane hangar at Reykjavík Airport. Subsequently, it has become one of the premier showcases for new music in the world, with hundreds of journalists and industry people in attendance.
