Today saw a big announcement from Iceland Airwaves in which 30 more acts for this November’s festival were announced. They include names such as Arlo Parks, Sad Night Dynamite, Aron Can, and Vök. Names already announced include Black Pumas, Metronomy, Daði Freyr, and many more.

Iceland Airwaves is set to go ahead on 3-6 November in Reykjavík city centre, and its presence on the calendar is more eagerly awaited than ever, following so many festivals’ cancellations and Airwaves’ online-only presence last year.

Arlo Parks is one of the biggest names in the latest announcement, though fellow Brits Sad Night Dynamite are also gaining lots of new fans at the moment. 

American act Black Pumas were booked for 2020 and are holding their place this year, having gained worldwide fame in the meantime. 

Iceland Airwaves is known as a festival that “discovers” new acts right before they become mainstream famous. Some who could fit into that category this year include Laufey, who recently won the Best New Jazz/Blues Act at the Icelandic music awards, Eydís Evense, Ouse, and Power Paladin. 

It is also worth mentioning the return of synth-punk band Kælan Mikla, the indie trubador Axel Flóvent, and dream-pop trio Vök.
