The Reykjavik Grapevine is an English language Icelandic magazine based in the Icelandic capital of Reykjavík. The magazine debuted on June 13, 2003. Its first six issues were edited by Jón Trausti Sigurðarson and Valur Gunnarsson. In its second year, the magazine grew in circulation from 25,000 issues to 30,101. In its third year, American-born Bart Cameron took over as editor, also editing Inside Reykjavik, the Grapevine Guide, in 2006, through the Mál og Menning imprint of Edda Press. Bart was followed by Sveinn Birkir Björnsson and then Haukur S. Magnússon.

The magazine is currently a year-round publication, fortnightly from May to September, and monthly from October to April, a total of 18 issues a year. The editorial structure changed in January 2012, when Anna Andersen, former Grapevine journalist, became managing editor with Haukur taking on the role of editor in chief.

During the Iceland Airwaves music festival, Reykjavík Grapevine becomes a daily publication focusing on music.
