Iceland Airwaves is an annual music festival held in Reykjavík, Iceland in early November.

The festival spans four days (Wednesday - Saturday) and its main focus is showcasing new music, both Icelandic and international. The festival's main sponsors are Icelandair and the City of Reykjavík.

Festival[edit]

The first show was held in 1999 as a one-off event in an airplane hangar at Reykjavík Airport.[1][2]

Iceland Airwaves is promoted and produced by Iceland Music Export.[3] and sponsored by its founder Icelandair, in cooperation with the City of Reykjavik.

In February 2018 it was announced that event managing company Sena Live, a subsidiary of production company Sena, recently bought Iceland Airwaves Music Festival. The Festival will now be promoted and produced by Sena Live. [4]
