Iceland Airwaves now in Akureyri as well as Reykjavík

In an exciting new development, Reykjavík's longest running and finest music festival is going to be happening across two cities this year. Iceland Airwaves is expanding to Akureyri in North Iceland for the first time, giving international and local music lovers the opportunity to enjoy the festival in three ways.

You can buy a ticket for the whole five day Reykjavík festival(£173 / 21.900 ISK) or the two day Akureyri festival (£61.50/ 8,900 ISK), or even do a combination of the two, attending 2nd - 3rd November at Akureyri then flying to Reykjavík for the 4th - 5th November (£110/ 15,900 ISK).

As for just the Akureyri festival across the 2nd - 3rd November, 25 artists from the Reykjavík line-up will be performing in this bustling capital of the North, complete with plenty of Off Venue bands too.

So why not try a different version of Iceland Airwaves this year and combine with a trip to North Iceland's stunning answer to the blue lagoon, spectacular highlands and waterfalls?

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
