Airwaves report: Can't talk, need sleep.

... how to describe the Airwaves experience. From the laidback seriousness of Ampop to the attention grabbing antics of Trabant and all the way to the clubthumping bodymass of Gus Gus, this is something you just don't want to miss, ever, and it gets better every time.

Looking back at the schedule we're struck with the number of acts we didn't catch. The schedule was hectic and it's a testament to the vitality of the Icelandic music scene that you need a team of people just to cover the highlights.

Our most sincere apologies to Einar Örn for missing his concert although we thoroughly enjoyed his surprise performance with Gus Gus. This was undoubtedly the absolute climax of the festival. The totally packed house went absolutely crazy.

And there's still one more party to go to...
