Bands share their first memories of Iceland Airwaves

Iceland Monitor got a few of the Icelandic bands playing at the Iceland Airwaves festival this year, which takes place from this Wednesday until Sunday, to answer a few questions.

We asked Herra Hnetusmjör, Kælan mikla, Júlía Hermannsdóttir of Oyama and Wesen, Kött Grá Pje and Úlfur Eldjárn about their first memory from the festival in the past.  

All of the above bands are playing both on and off-venue during the festival. The entire Iceland Airwaves schedule, for both on and off-venue is available HERE. 

You can also connect with the schedule on Facebook which means you'll get reminders before each bands starts of when and where to go.
