Iceland Airwaves 2019 Announces Final Wave of Performers

Iceland Airwaves is one of the world’s premier music discovery festivals, and the annual event just unveiled the final wave of lineup additions for its 2019 edition. The festival returns to Reykjavík Nov. 6-9, and the lineup will feature over 130 bands from 20 countries, all while achieving a 50/50 artist gender balance for the second year in a row.

This last addition of performers features Los Angeles-based musician and activist Madame Gandhi, Australian DJ and producer Nina Las Vegas, Rebecca Taylor’s (Slow Club) new project Self Esteem, and many more. The list of previously announced artists includes Of Monsters and Men, Whitney, Shame, Mac DeMarco, Orville Peck, Girl in Red, John Grant and others.

Iceland Airwaves began in 1999 as a one-off festival in an airplane hangar, but it now welcomes more than 6,000 visitors from around 60 countries each year. Past performers have included Florence + The Machine, James Blake, Sufjan Stevens, Björk, The Flaming Lips, The Knife and Kraftwerk.
