The duet BSÍ professes to be singularly interested in traffic culture. Undeniably an unusual inspiration for music, this manifesto is reflected both in the duet’s name, which refers to the Reykjavík bus centre, and the energetic, hypnotic drumming of Sigurlaug Thorarensen, one half of the duo with Julius Rothlaender. Despite a paucity of opportunities to perform in the past few months, the duo has not been idle and has concentrated on eating lots of candy and writing enough material to record a second album, just waiting to be released.

We take corporate responsibility and its role in the Icelandic community seriously. Part of that is supporting young and aspiring musicians. The acts presented here are only a few examples of the flourishing music scene in Iceland.

Iceland Airwaves has for years been a great addition to Icelandic culture and an important platform for Icelandic musicians. We are proud to be among the festival’s main sponsors.
