Last week I travelled to Iceland to cover the festival Iceland Airwaves for GAFFA Norge. My article (in Norwegian) is published here, but I also had loads og pictures that I could not fit in the article so I wanted to share some of my favorite shots from the festival and Iceland in this blog post.
This was my first visit to Iceland so I’m really happy that I also had the chance to visit Secret Lagoon, Geysir and Gullfoss on this trip too. In addition to the Reykjavík Photographic Museum and the Icelandic Phallological Museum(!).
The musical highlights of this year’s Iceland Airwaves, for me, were Reikjavíkurdætur, Ólafur Arnalds, AURORA, Natalie Prass and Blood Orange. I was most disappointed with Snail Mail (great music, but not a very good show) and Julian Casablancas & The Voidz (Casablancas being a big hero for me on account of growing up with The Strokes, but his new project is really not that interesting and the show was a mess).
