Playlist – Iceland Airwaves (The “Before” Track List)

I’ll be heading to the Iceland Airwaves music festival in just a matter of weeks, and I am extremely excited.  Aside from the local Edmonton Folk Music Festival and Sonic Boom Rock Music Festival, I have never attended a real music festival before.  Of course, a few weeks ago I was highly disappointed to find out some of the acts I was looking forward to seeing are appearing at the exact same time as each other, so there will be a few things I will have to miss out on.  As a result, I now know I will learn many lessons from attending this music festival – first one being don’t expect to see everything!
