The team behind Iceland Airwaves have announced a new streaming festival called Live From Reykjavík, which will see performances from the likes of Ólafur Arnalds, Daði Freyr and more.

Live From Reykjavík is a virtual two-day festival set to take place next month with performances recorded at venues across the Icelandic capital including Iðnó, Gamla Bío, Art Museum Reykjavík and more.

Ólafur Arnalds, Daði Freyr, Ásgeir, Of Monsters and Men, Hatari, Mammút, Vök, Hjaltalín, Bríet, Auður, GDRN and more have been confirmed for the streaming festival today.

The virtual festival is a collaboration with Iceland’s public broadcaster RÚV, and will be accessible via TV, radio and online.

Festival Director Ísleifur Þórhallsson says, "We wanted to find a way to shine a spotlight on the vast talent of the music scene here in Iceland, as well as support the larger industry and show some innovation. To have all these artists in Iceland at the same time is a ‘lighting strikes once’ moment, and we wanted to seize it with both hands."

Live From Reykjavík will take place on 13 and 14 November from 7:30pm GMT on each day. Tickets are available to buy now from, with two-day passes available for £40.
