Ásgeir Trausti kicks off Airwaves in Akureyri

The Iceland Airwaves music festival started in Reykjavík this week and this year the festival also takes place in Akureyri, the second largest urban area after the capital area of Reykjavík and only a one hour drive from Húsavík. The festival kicks off in Akureyri tonight with performances by Húsavík artist Ásgeir Trausti, Mammút, Hildur, and Akureyri band 200.000 Naglbítar.

Icelandair offered packages from London Heathrow and Gatwick, Manchester and Glasgow with a 45 minute connecting domestic flight immediately upon arrival in Iceland from Keflavik International Airport to Akureyri.

The festival’s intimate venues are located throughout the downtown area of the capital of the North, so you can hop from one performance to the next.
