What’s more the festival says that its lineup “achieves gender parity” for the second year running meaning equal 50/50 gender split.

“Fantastic artists and performances remain our core focus,” said Anna Ásthildur Thorsteinsson (Marketing Manager of Iceland Airwaves and Phase One participant of Keychange). There’s such great talent coming through from Iceland and abroad that the selection process was effortless for us. Gender parity was easily met this year.”

Tickets are on sale now for 19.900 ISK (around €142) for a four-day pass.
