Up and Coming Icelandic Bands at Airwaves 2015

Wouldn‘t you like to see the next Björk, Sigur Rós or Of Monsters and Men before they are famous? Then make sure you don‘t miss these up-and-coming Icelandic Bands at Airwaves 2015! 

Sturla Atlas

The „it-boy“ of the Icelandic hip-hop and R&B scene at the moment. Yup, there is such a scene in Iceland.

Vaginaboys

Easy, smooth electro with sarcastic lyrics. 10 points if you can see their face without the masks.

Herra Hnetusmjör

His English name would be „Mr. Peanutbutter“. This Icelandic rapper is straight out of Kópavogur!

Vio

Winners of the 2014 Icelandic Battle of the Bands. Released their debut album late last year, to positive reviews.

Gangly

A band formed by Jófríður of Samaris, Sindri of Sing Fang and Úlfur from Oyama. Kind of a local indie-super-group.
