How does Iceland Airwaves affect the life and the people living in Reykjavik? The city becomes alive at Airwaves, which is a wonderful thing since the month before is so quiet. It is a cold and dark time so any form of distraction is welcome. The downtown area fills up with hipsters, musicians and festival goers and makes the city feel vibrant and alive, and it’s positive for local business during a down time.
Describe is the perfect festival outfit? I don´t think there is a perfect festival outfit for Airwaves as it is usually crazy cold outside and steaming hot inside.
I like to wear platform shoes so i can peak over the crowd but still be comfortable standing for a long time and running between venues. I also like to wear a jacket that I can tie around my waist or throw on the floor.
I love how everybody “dresses up” in one way or another so if you want to stand out and get your picture taken by some blogger or get noticed for your style, pump up the volume. The bar has been set – high – so get your peacock on!
What are your favorite shops in Reykjavik? My favorite shops for clothes are; JÖR and Aftur. For shoes; 38 Þrep. For vintage; Nostalgía, Spúútnik and Lucky Records and Smekkleysa for music.
Best hangover food in Reykjavik? I don´t drink anymore so I am out of the loop of where to go for munch. But my favourite restaurants for dinner are Fiskmarkaðurinn and K-bar. For lunch Gló and for brunch I can recommend Coocoos nest, in the industrial neighbourhood Grandi.
There are also off venues all over town so even if you weren’t able to get an Airwaves ticket in time you’ll have a chance to hear some great bands playing for free, often in a very intimate setting. Please come see our kick ass line up at JÖR on Laugavegur 89, while you’re here! See the event on Facebook HERE.
