Midlake, Emiliana Torrini, FM Belfast joining the line-up for Iceland Airwaves!

If we weren't already pining to head north for the annual Iceland Airwaves festival, we are now.

Reykjavik dedicates a week in late-Spring every year to celebrate Iceland's dynamic, diverse and thriving music scene (and to take advantage of the final rays of sunlight before the darkness of winter sets in). Inviting local and international artists alike, this year's bill has just exploded to feature an additional 30 musicians. Among them, coming over from the US is Midlake, while Icelandic homegrown superstars Emiliana Torrini, FM Belfast and Retro Stefson are also invited to party. The festival takes place in venues all over Iceland's happening capital city from October 30 to November 3. Anyone lucky enough to head up to the tiny island for the cause can purchase tickets at www.icelandairwaves.is.
