Offering one Australian act the chance to jump on a plane and head to Iceland to perform at the esteemed Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik, FBi’s ‘Northern Lights Competition’ is back for another year!
In terms of prizes, the ones on offer to the lucky winner are pretty damn sweet. As well as a spot on the festival line up which, this year, boasts the likes of PJ Harvey, Warpaint, Kate Tempest and more, the competition also will see the winner spend a day at Sigur Rós‘ Sundlaugin Studio and network with some of the industry’s best. Once back in Australia, they’ll spend three days recording and developing the work they created in Iceland out at Sydney’s Studios 301.
Want to get involved? Of course you do. Get your entries in for consideration by August 5th this year by submitting via this LINK.
The competition was first launched in 2011 and has since seen the likes of LUCIANBLOMKAMP, Oliver Tank, Rainbow Chan, The Walking Who and more bring their music to crowds in one of the world’s most incredible landscapes.
Iceland Airwaves runs from November 2nd through until November 6th this year. Check out their latest artist announcement video below:
