Happening this month: music festivals around the globe

Iceland Airwaves

4 to 8 November, Reykjavik, Iceland

There’s something appealing that comes with the notion of an Icelandic music festival; if it’s not the spectacular and scenic natural beauty of the land, it’s the unique culture that easily draws us in. But this time, it is all paired with a humongous selection of great music from Iceland and abroad – about 120 of them that will turn downtown Reykjavik into a music haven for five whole days. The headliners include Hot Chip, Beach House, Battles, Ariel Pink and many, many more. Head here for the full lineup.
