Woo-a-hoo. Another chunk O’ bands have been announced for Airwaves 2014. And I’m extremely pleased as there are a lot of Icelandic bands I haven’t heard yet, and the ones I have are classic. So far, there are 61 bands that have been announced, 40 of which are Icelandic.
Non Icelandic bands include Future Islands, Farao, Emilie Nicolas, and The War on Drugs will be closing the festival with the Flaming lips. Also, Zhala, Spray Paint, and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will be there.
This round of bands goes to the Icelanders though. There are so many good bands coming, Oyama will be there. And Rökkurró as well. Þórir Georg, Kaleo, Endless Dark, Kippi Kaninus, Brain Police, Beneath, Fufanu, Epic Rain, Skurken, AMFJ, Kontinuum, Ophidian I, Var, Atónal Blús, Mafama, Vio, Lucy in Blue and Conflictions as well.
Links to all the Icelandic bands music will be on my Iceland Airwaves page, and you can learn more about the festival here as well as see the entire line up on the Iceland Airwaves official website. The festival is definitely going to be another goodun!
And I leave you with Þórir Georg’s cover of Heya but Outkast. It’s an oldie, but I love it:
