It's a clear, crisp afternoon in beautiful Reykjavík, Iceland and locals and visitors alike are gearing up for what is sure to be another great year at Iceland Airwaves Music Festival. Here at Kex Hostel, the KEXP road crew is putting the finishing touches on our preparations for this year's off-venue spectacular. We're starting things out with a wonderful day of live music as we welcome four Icelandic acts to the Kex stage. Opening the 2017 broadcast is indie-pop duo Between Mountains, followed by KEXP mainstay Sóley. Next, a guaranteed dance party with electronic band GusGus, and we'll be closing the day with Hatari, one of Reykjavík's favorite new live acts. It's going to be a treat, so be sure to join us live on air or watch our live video feed to feel like you're right here with us!
