Over the years, we at KEXP have been excited about the amazing talent produced in the very small country of Iceland, and over the past two years, we’ve gone to the Iceland Airwaves Music Festival to capture some of it. While Björk and Sigur Ros are among the most famous Icelandic exports, hundreds of other artists, like Of Monsters and Men, Mammút, Retro Stefson, and For A Minor Reflection, are just waiting to be discovered. Below, we’ve collected just a handful of those great musicians, but this year you could go see for yourself!

KEXP and Iceland Air want to send you and a guest to Iceland for the Iceland Airwaves Music Festival, October 12th-16th. You could win airfare, three nights hotel room, and four-day passes to the festival. Enjoy beautiful scenery, amazing culture, and great music from Icelandic and international artists, including performances by Beach House, tUnE-yArDs, Owen Pallett, Dungen, Austra, Glasser, John Grant, Sin Fang, and many more! This is all made possible courtesy of Iceland Air.
