Every Autumn, Reykjavik rocks a little louder! Hear the hottest bands from Iceland, Europe, the Americas and beyond in the coolest setting on Earth. The festival's intimate venues are located througout the capital's downtown area, so you can hop from one performance to the next.

The basic Iceland Airwaves vacation package is three nights (including two nights in Iceland) departing November 5, 2015, returning November 8, 2015. Since popular events take place on the 8th, we suggest adding that day to your trip and returning back to North America on November 9. Please note schedules and availability for all package options are based on your North American gateway. For example, Denver packages require an extra hotel night at the beginning to accommodate flight schedule, with departures on November 4, returning November 8; Newark requires one additional night added at the end, departing November 5, returning November 9; and Minneapolis-St. Paul departures require one additional night before the trip and one additional night after the trip, departing November 4, returning November 9.

For more information on the event and scheduled performers visit icelandairwaves.is. Also, while in Iceland, we highly recommend considering any of the many day tours that are available for exploring everything from Reykjavik's cultural offerings, to the beautiful Icelandic countryside.

Please note previously announced headliner Björk announced on August 5, 2015 the cancellation of all remaining 2015 tour dates including Iceland Airwaves. For further information, please see the official announcement from Iceland Airwaves.

Important: Please note passengers under 20 years old cannot attend the festival events.
