Iceland Airwards new additions feature Sprints, Franco-American brothers Faux Real, Canadian singer-songwriter Andy Shauf, indie electronica from Montreal's Ghostly Kisses, Norwegian popstar SKAAR and German bedroom producer Donkey Kid.

Local talent includes Eydís Evensen, Árný Margrét, Kónguló – who will be making their debut appearance at Iceland Airwaves – as well as Kusk og Óviti and Kári Egilsson, and Jelena Ciric.

They will be joining the already announces Yard Act, Squid, Blondshell, Balming Tiger, Trentemøller, Neonme, Lime Garden, Of Monsters And Men’s NaNNa, The Haunted Youth, Kneecap and more.

Iceland Airwaves, which was crowned Best Indoor Festival at the 2022 European Festival Awards, will feature Reykjavík venues for 2023 including Reykjavík Art Museum, Gamla Bíó, Iðnó, Fríkirkjan Church, Gaukurinn and Húrra.

Iceland Airwaves is dedicated to booking gender-balanced line-ups as part of the festival’s ongoing work with Keychange, and having honoured the pledge just as soon as it was signed in 2019, gender-parity still remains a vital part of what the festival represents and the community of creatives that it reflects.

Iceland Airwaves 2023 will take place in Reykjavík from 2-4 November. Visit for more information and tickets.
