We can think of dozens of reasons why you should enter the 2016 Iceland Airwaves flyaway contest, but today let’s concentrate on the big one: MUSIC.

Every year, music lovers like you return from Reykjavik and rave to us about the cool new bands they discovered at Iceland Airwaves. Longtime KEXP donors Kathleen and Gene, who attended in 2015 after years of enjoying KEXP’s festival coverage, are no exceptions:

“The number of Icelandic musicians was astounding given the tiny population,” recalls Gene. “Growing up on an isolated island they’ve developed their own unique musical and performance styles.” Even if you don’t speak the language, discovering great local bands at the festival is easy: “Just pick an Icelandic name in the program and show up,” he adds. “You’ll leave wanting to move to Iceland!”

It’s just as easy to enter KEXP’s 2016 Iceland Airwaves Flyaway contest. Winner receives airfare for two, hotel accommodations, and a pair of five-day passes to the festival, featuring PJ Harvey, Warpaint, Lush, Digable Planets, Júníus Meyvant, and many more.

Entering the contest will only take you a moment, but don’t delay—this opportunity only lasts a few days.

    Looking to bring the global to local, as the cliché goes, in all aspects of life. Per my current job, that means integrating a diverse array of players (from East African immigants to fund managers) into the PNW food economy to create viable local farming businesses and improve food access for marginalized populations. For my personal life, that means ruminating on and participating in music experiences from across the globe. I’ve learned and comminicated more through music than any other medium, and have come to reach new understandings of others and myself in the proces. KEXP has been an integral part of that journey and I’d love to continue on at Iceland Airwaves 2016.
