Every fall since 2012, I've attended Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavik. (In 2015, Cosmic Amanda came along and BFF.fm broadcasted live from Lucky Records!)

So, whether I post it or not, I have a running list of Icelandic bands I always see if they play and new Icelandic bands who I've never seen perform before.

If you listen to my radio program you might be familiar with some of my favorites. But! There's always new local artists that I look forward to catching for the first time.


Here are the 7 Best Icelandic Bands to See at Iceland Airwaves 2017

1. JFDR

2. Gangly

3. RuGl 

4. Pascal Pinon

5. Glowie


6. FM Belfast


7. Mr. Silla
