Reykjavik was bathed in a magical glow as crowds surged through the rainy streets on their way to the multitude of concerts on offer on the second evening of Iceland Airwaves. 

Among the highlights of Thursday evening were Smurjón, Mr.Silla, Low Roar, Mercury Rev and Father John Misty. The festival continues tonight with performances from artists that include Kælan mikla, Pink Street Boys, Úlfur Úlfur, East of My Youth and Ariel Pink. 

Our photographer Styrmir Kári captured the atmosphere.
