After the first night of Airwaves, bleary-eyed festival-goers are just now starting to brave Reykjavik's wind and rain to get ready for  day two. Over a coffee (or maybe a strong drink, depending who you talk to), everyone's buzzing about the bands they saw last night and the far-flung, hidden party spaces they found their way to.

KEXP is back at Kex Hostel for another day of broadcasting and live video. Kevin will be taking over the morning show, and Cheryl will be on the afternoon show as usual. First we have experimental composer Úlfur Eldjárn, then folk-rock artist Júníus Meyvant. Smack in the middle are the funk-influenced electro beats of the UK's LoneLady, followed by the hip hop stylings of Emmsjé Gauti. Rounding out the day will be a set from GusGus that will be sure to start a dance party, both here at Kex and wherever you happen to be listening, all starting at 6 AM PST/9 AM PST. You can watch the live video stream here, listen as usual at, and follow our coverage right here on the blog!
