The line-up for this October's* Iceland Airwaves Festival*, held in Reykjavík from the 18th to the 20th, is shaping up quite wonderfully and we're very happy to announced that there will be a Drowned in Sound stage at the festival
Among the acts on our stage will be DiS's very own Metric - surely it hasn't escaped your notice that their album, Live It Out, is released on Monday? Plus there with be a special DJ-set from Kaiser Chiefs.
No additions to the festival bill include Canadians Wolf Parade and Islands, and Britain's The Cribs.
Also confirmed are Love Is All, Cold War Kids *and *Brazillian Girls.
Around 100 Icelandic bands are due to perform - no mean feat considering that Iceland itself is home to only 300,000 individuals. The festival is a proven platform for international success: last year Jakobínarína were on the receiving end of positive praise from Rolling Stone and DiS, and have since signed with Rough Trade.
