Would love to share this experience with my wonderful friend, festival dance partner, travel buddy and sidekick for life, Karin. She’s a teacher and has been under massive strain this pandemic. Traveling is normally her release, but like all of us, she hasn’t been able to do that. So I’d love give her a bit of a boost, some emotional support, through this event. ❤️

I miss all my friends and family back in Iceland! With COVIDs travel restrictions, I am not sure when I will be able to go again. This experience would make me feel like I am there and it would allow me to “take” my boyfriend with me !!

We’ve all had a rocky time of it this past few months so it would be awesome to treat myself and my husband to something other than banana bread baking, Netflix box sets and zoom quizzes!!!

I would be so honored to win these tickets!! My husband and I were suppose to fly out to Iceland for our Honeymoon on March 26th, 2020 and return home April 3rd, 2020, but the pandemic had different plans for us 🙁 I remember sitting in bed about 5 days prior and learning that the boarders were shut down. So, here we wait until the boarders open to finally go on our Honeymoon to Iceland, the most beautiful country we have learned about! I have planned our trip for over a year, and we are praying we get to go this summer. This would mean the world to us to win these tickets to the virtual event!!

Last year I’ve been to Iceland Airwaves and it was the first time I traveled alone and even celebrated my birthday there – I had the time of my life! I love Iceland and so wanted to do it again this year, this time with a friend of mine. But instead I had a birthday with covid-restrictions at home… I would so love to get a bit of that Iceland Airwaves spirit

Single mama here would love to hear some new music and have a little musical ‘get away’ this way. Would sure ease the pain a little of ESNS next edition having to go digital too. This will get me back into the mood and I can have my 6 months old to have a great music experience this way too.

I would love to win, because Iceland Airwaves is my favourite festival and this year I couldn’t travel to Reykjavik and enjoy the festival as it happened the years before.
