Iceland Airwaves
October 18, 2006 - October 22, 2006
Reykjavik , ICELAND

Some of the world's most exciting artists, including Suede, The Flaming Lips, The Hives, Fatboy Slim, Sparta, and Thievery Corporation, have made the short hop from Europe or North America to share the stages with Iceland's finest talents: Sigur Rós, Gus Gus, Jagúar, Quarashi, Leaves, Trabant, Ulpa, Apparat Organ Quartet and many, many more. And when the live bands are finished, top DJs spin across the city until dawn.
  
But there's more to Airwaves than music. Reykjavík is possibly the perfect festival city – small enough to be welcoming, sophisticated enough to offer cultural, historical and nightlife diversions to rival cities ten times its size. Maybe 20. And it's surrounded by some of the most unique and astonishing natural beauty you're ever likely to see. Roll out of bed, hose the party remains out of your hair and hop a bus. Before you can remember what you did the night before, you're looking at geysers, waterfalls, lava fields – all the best that a volcanic island has to offer, including the world-famous Blue Lagoon, favorite soaking spot of the international hung-over glitterati. Mmm! You can really taste the hipster!
  
With inclusive package tours from major international gateways starting at less than you might expect to pay for airfare alone, getting neck deep in one of the hottest, coolest music festivals anywhere is maybe just a little too easy. Poke around the site, sign up for email updates, check the prices from your neck of the woods, and read about what's in store for 2003. Then come and join the party.

Canadian rock band Metric are the latest act to be added to Iceland Airwaves Festival line-up. Metric are brought to the festival by Drowned in Sound who for the second year are hosting a night on the festival. Over 130 acts will be performing on Iceland Airwaves 2006 taking place on various clubs and indoor venues in downtown Reykjavik 18-22 October. Among other acts confirmed are Brit Awards winners Kaiser Chiefs (UK) Brazilian Girls (FRA/US), Wolf Parade (CAN), Jenny Wilson (SE), The Cribs (UK), Whomadewho (DK), Islands (CAN), Love is All (SE), Mugison (ICE) and Jakobínarína (ICE).
