Iceland Airwaves Giveaway

All individuals who make a donation during our Fall Member Drive, along with existing WFUV sustaining members,  will be entered to win a trip to Reykjavík for the Iceland Airwaves Music Festival. Round trip airfare and accommodations for two are included, as well as tickets to the festival, November 6-9, 2019.

It's a short trip: 5.5 hours in the air, which is about the same as going to LA. You can see bands from Iceland, the UK, the US and all over, like Mac DeMarco, Cautious Clay, John Grant, Of Monsters And Men, Orville Peck, Velvet Negroni and Whitney. Round-trip airfare to Reykjavík and three nights accommodations is included.

To qualify, you must contribute to WFUV (or complete alternate entry below) between 6am on September 20, 2019 and 12 midnight on September 27, 2019. One winner will be chosen at random and notified by WFUV by phone on Tuesday, October 1, 2019.

Iceland Airwaves has come a long way since its inception in an airplane hangar at Reykjavík Airport. Nowadays the festival is regarded as the biggest celebration of music in Iceland and boasts an unrivaled line-up of established and up-and-coming artists. From concerts in tiny record stores and art museums to cool bars and beautiful churches, Airwaves-goers can expect to soak up the festival atmosphere in some of the city’s most unique venues. And it’s not just about the music; there will be plenty of opportunities to indulge in yummy Icelandic cuisine, sample the local beer, make new friends, relax in the hot pools and marvel at the aurora borealis.

The Grand Prize includes:

  • Economy class, round-trip flights on Icelandair for two people from New York's JFK (or another U.S. Icelandair hub) to Reykjavik's International Airport (KEF)
  • Two Reykjavík City Welcome Cards
  • Two Iceland Airwaves 2019 festival passes
  • Three nights accommodations for two in Reykjavik, based on double occupancy, with Scandinavian buffet breakfast daily, except on arrival date
  • Two round-trip bus transfers from the airport to the hotel in Iceland
