The Flaming Lips close Iceland Airwaves 2014 in a style that can only be described as ecstatic, confetti-crazed and completely over the top. The War on Drugs as a warm-up is not bad either, even without the gimmicks.
The off-venue program for this year’s Iceland Airwaves is quite simply enormous: 675 shows at 52 venues over a period of one week is more than anybody can even begin to consider. So, much like the main event, planning and controlling expectations is vital.
Organizers of the Iceland Airwaves music festival released the off-venue program yesterday. With 675 performances at 52 locations, it’s the biggest off-venue program to date. Airwaves will start in Iceland’s capital on November 5. The first off-venue concerts take place on November 3.
The schedule for the 2014 Iceland Airwaves music festival, held November 5-9 in Reykjavík, is ready. The schedule is available in pdf form on airwaves.is and the festival organizers are planning to release an app and online planner soon.
