Iceland Airwaves

This just in! Mo Kenney is performing at Iceland Airwaves Music Festival, which takes place in Reykjavik from Oct 31 – Nov 4.

We think it’s pretty cool, here’s a bit of background about the festival:

“Since the first edition was held in 1999 (in an airplane hangar), Iceland Airwaves has become one of the premier annual showcases for new music ‚Äì Icelandic and otherwise ‚Äì in the world. It‚Äôs made a heap of friends and won many fans along the way, and been lavished with praise pretty much everywhere they write about music. Example: Rolling Stone magazine called it ‚ÄúThe hippest long weekend on the annual music-festival calendar.‚Äù

Some of the world‚Äôs most exciting artists have performed there, too. The Shins, The Rapture, TV On The Radio, Florence and the Machine, Klaxons, Hot Chip, Flaming Lips, Wolf Parade, Bloc Party and Fatboy Slim have made the short hop from Europe or North America to share the stages with Iceland‚Äôs finest talents, including bands such as Bj√∂rk, Sigur R√≥s, FM Belfast, GusGus, m√∫m, Of Monsters and Men and Seabear, to name but a few. And when the live bands have done their thing, top DJs from all over the world spin across the city until the crack of dawn.”
