Iceland Express gets into the party spirit
3 September 2009
Festival fever is back in Iceland as partygoers prepare for the highlight of the music calendar – The Iceland Airwaves music festival. The event, which is regarded by the industry as the premier showcase for new music, takes place from 16 – 19 October 2008 and attracts throngs of music fans from all across the globe.
Featuring Icelandic and International music, Airwaves is a highlight on any partygoer’s calendar.
As the city prepares for the number one festival of the year, the national low-cost carrier, Iceland Express presents unbeatable fares from £69.00 per person, making October the month for a Reykjavik city break.
Bands including CSS, Vampire Weekend, Biffy Clyro, The Young Knives and White Denim will descend upon Reykjavik for the four-day event.
The artists will be playing in a diverse range of venues including a former shipping warehouse which is home to the Reykjavik Art Museum. The city’s official ‘sleazy’ rock dive Gaukurinn is also hosting an event, as is the charming old theatre Idno and of course The Blue Lagoon.
The colourful and vibrant city of Reykjavik is a major magnet attracting visitors looking for a chic city break. Its night-life, shopping, dining and culture are legendary and the city is also a great base from which to explore the country’s thermal pools, mountains, glaciers and the famous Blue Lagoon.
Flights with Iceland Express start from £69.00 per person, one-way, including taxes. Flights are daily between London Stansted and Reykjavik.
