Saturday Night's All Right for Iceland Airwaves 2010

Nikita has the best afternoon lineup- it's a festival in its own right (Útidúr, Nóra, Reykjavík!,Ham and many others).

Havarí has Amiina at 14:00, if you missed them Friday, this actually might be a better experience.

Hjaltalín (presumably without orchestra) will be at Kaffibarinn at 19:30:

Nasa has a strong line up tonight starting with the fiesty Hellvar at 19:30:

Toggi (20:50 at Risið) is the funniest act at the festival, and also an accomplished singer/songwriter:

Ólafur Arnalds has his showcase performance at Iðno (21:40), it just may be transcendent.

Apparat Organ Quartet (Nasa, 23:00) WILL BE transcendent- don't miss them:

Pop diva Robyn has the top slot at the art museum, so you probably won't be able to get in, you may rather want to catch the eternal/infernal Einar and his electronica group Ghostigital at Tjarnarbió (both at 00:00)

For you night-owls Retro Stefson (Nasa, 0:10) has a youthful vitality that's hard to beat, but UMTBS (Faktory, 02:30!) will give it a hell of a try.

The Reykjavík Grapevine is putting up reviews of selected Airwaves concerts- their usual snarky mix- but there is a lot of info there. They have a slide show as well, but only of a few bands, and no captions.
