Iceland Airwaves aims for acts who we feel will have a good chance of successful outcomes from their performance (good attendance to their show, good media and industry interest). If we feel there is a higher likelihood that an artist can get something out of showcasing at Airwaves, we may gravitate to them first. We do receive some applications from new talent that while very good, are not always relevant to the audience and market. In those cases, it’s less easy to justify putting those artists on the line-up. We aim for a balanced mix of artists and genres across the festival. We do have to consider that ultimately, the line-up needs to be one that audiences are going to want to see.Read More
