ICELAND AIRWAVES FESTIVAL 2009 - THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
We are pleased to confirm that the 10th Anniversary of Iceland Airwaves Festival, that will take place in Reykjavik on 15th – 19th October, will be going ahead despite rumours due to Iceland's current economical crisis.
Earlier today the organiser, Mr. Destiny confirmed:
"In spite of economical difficulties in Iceland at the moment the Iceland Airwaves festival will take place next week just like it has done for the past 10 years. The economical crisis does not affect the planning and promoting of the festival. Ticket sales have been going well and with the festival less than one week away, there are only a few tickets still available. Among the bands playing the festival this year are CSS, Vampire Weekend, Biffy Clyro, Junior boys, White denim, Boy Crisis, Simian Mobile disco, Pnau, Florence and the Machine and the Young Knives.
The organizers (mr.Destiny) are looking forward to lifting the spirits of the Icelandic people and would like to point out to international guests that Iceland not only has the best beer in Europe it's now also the cheapest one."
