From the Archives: The Crunchy Guide to Iceland Airwaves (by crunchy.dk 11. October 2007)

DEAR FRIENDS

As some of you might already know, this is the second time that we, in collaboration with Iceland Air and Airwaves, send a handful of Crunchy bands to Reykjavik to kick ass at the Airwaves Festival. We are so much looking forward to get to Reykjavik to party and hang out with YOU!

We’ve had quite a few bands at Airwaves before: PowerSolo, epo-555, Heavy Trash, Junior Senior og The Tremolo Beer Gut. And this year Snake and Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band (SAJABB) will be debuting at the Airwaves Festival.
Crunchy Frog records are already in circulation in Iceland, but we have recently started a collaboration with 12Tonar who are now distributing the crisp tones for the Icelandic people. Being present at this year’s Airwaves Festival we hope to draw attention to the good music directly from Copenhagen, Denmark. As you might already know our three bands Heavy Trash, The Tremolo Beer Gut and aforementioned SAJABB are on this year’s billboard. All three bands play at Lídó.

We have made a Crunchy Guide to Airwaves. Unfortunately it is only available in Danish. Get the Guidebook as pdf.

GOOD THINGS TO REMEMBER
Iceland is way up north in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. So prepare yourself for bad weather. Leave the hot pants at home and bring the winter coat.
A few good thing you do have to remember:
Remember swimming suit:! – The Blue Lagoon hot tub is a must.
Remember booze! Iceland is pretty expensive. so remember your hip flasks.
…. and remember the Crunchy Frog concerts!
