Hi pals,

As a music discovery enthusiast, I love feasting my eyes on the lineup posters of the best music festivals in the world the second they’re announced. The Iceland Airwaves lineups always pack a punch. Year after year, they offer the perfect balance of incredible Icelandic talent, with past performances from Vök, Mammút, and Júníus Meyvant, and the hippest international acts, like Polo & Pan, Omar Souleyman, Altin Gün, Kelly Lee Owens, and the list goes on. It’s been arguably the coolest festival in the world for the last 20 years. 

KCRW’s Iceland Airwaves Sweepstakes will send one lucky winner and their guest to the festival in November. You’ll win roundtrip airfare for two, plus accommodations and passes to the fest. Enjoy the likes of Yard Act, Andy Shauf, Blondshell, and so many more exciting acts. But that’s not all. This great music is exponentially enhanced by one of the most magical settings on Earth: Iceland. Not only will you be surrounded by music in Reykjavík’s museums, churches, pubs, clubs, and streets, you’ll also take in the country’s spectacular scenery and geothermal wonders with two passes to Iceland’s famed Blue Lagoon. A true bucket list trip for any indie music lover. 

You’ll be automatically entered to win this once-in-a-lifetime experience when you give to KCRW during our Fall Fundraiser.* Donate any amount before September 27th for your chance!

Let the music take you to places you can only dare to imagine.
