Airwaves is where it’s at!

So apparently this festival in Iceland is where I need to be next November. Tickets go on sale December 1st…My wheels are turning already. I was simply blown away by the few tracks that Bob Boilen of NPR and Kevin Cole of Seattle’s KEXP shared on this week’s episode of ‘All Songs Considered.’ This festival has been going on in Reykjavik since 1999 and has quite the reputation for having not only already well known and respected artists from worldwide, but also new, unique and undiscovered artists of Iceland and the world. Who doesn’t want to go to Reykjavik for a weekend of incredible music? The artists they featured on the show included Junius Meyvant and Samaris, both of Reykjavik.
