In place of its cancelled traditional festival, Iceland Airwaves held a special ‘Live From Reykjavík’ livestream event last November.
Reviewing the show, NME said that “only a festival with such a strong community spirit and ethos such as this could pull off something like this,” adding: “Hosted over two consecutive days, the ticketed stream – which offered over four hours per day of music performances – gave a window into the Icelandic scene without compromise.
“Sure, there’s no sweaty mosh-pits and bustling queues to get into a buzzy venue, but instead a rare opportunity to enjoy an intimate view of musicians at the top of their game. Basically, there’s no tall bloke standing in your way – it’s just pure musical goodness.”
