Iceland Express will give you and your BFF two magic wristbands for this year’s Iceland Airwaves, plus fly you in and put you up. You just have to give us a really good reason.
You remember Iceland Airwaves, right? The music festival where everyone stopped wearing trucker caps way before they became unfashionable? It’s been happening in Reykjavík in October for years now and everyone is awfully excited about it. To quote a close source, “aside from the great music, the whole city behaves like its Christmas, New Years, and your best friend’s wedding all rolled into one.”
This year there will be all sorts of really cool, alphabetically ordered Icelandic bands like Agent Fresco, Berndsen, Cliff Clavin, Dikta, Esja, FM Belfast, Gus Gus — you get it. (And by the way, we didn’t make up any of those names.)
There are probably also some really good foreign bands but we seem to have completely forgotten their names.
(A loveable Icelandic–music nerd friend of ours has a good preview of the whole thing here and here. And if you promise to cover the parts of the screen where they have the Icelandair ads, we’ll let you read all about the festival on the Airwaves Website.)
Anyway, they say it’s all sold out but our heroic marketing department actually got hold of two of those magic wristbands that will get you in anywhere.
So here’s the deal: We are going to give away those two Iceland Airwaves passes (valid for all concerts), along with return flights for two from London, Copenhagen or Berlin. And should you choose to sleep or take the occasional shower, we will provide you with a place to do that too.
What you need to do is simply tell us why you want to come.
We’ll try to pick the one who has the
cutest Facebook profile photo best reason and seems like he or she who would enjoy it the most.
Some hints: There are no hints. Just be, you know, like, honest. You can do that, right?
Got it? Okay, good. Now go to our Facebook page and tell us tell us all about it.
* The small print: If you’re in London or Copenhagen you can fly in on 14, 15 or 16 October, and back on 19 or 20 October. If you’re in Berlin you can fly in on 16 October and back on 19 October. You’ll be staying at one of the three very nice Center Hotels the whole time, but please, no flirting with the staff, okay? We’ll announce who wins on Monday 12 October, so you’ll have some time to pack, but no trucker caps, please.
