WOW air offering 10% off flights for music fans.
Making unique alternative music events accessible to budget-conscious travellers from around the world, low-cost airline WOW air has sponsored new multimedia festival Norður og Niður, offering 10% off travel to and from Iceland.
Taking place between Christmas and New Year from 27-30 December at Reykjavik’s renowned Harpa concert hall, the arts event is ideally timed to keep the fun and festivities of the holiday season going. Iconic Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós – best known for their hit “Hoppípolla” – will also be making a comeback at the festival, marking their first show in Iceland in more than five years.
The WOWSIGURROS promo code will give 10% off flights each way to/from Iceland during the festival from 27 December 2017 – 15 January 2018, originating from London Gatwick, as well as the following WOW air destinations: AMS, SXF, BOS, BRU, ORD, CPH, DUB, FRA, LAX, MIA, YUL, EWR, CDG, PIT, SFO, ARN, TLV, YYZ, BWI. This is valid for bookings made between now and Monday 30 October 2017 (until midnight).
Alongside Sigur Rós, the event’s world-class line-up features big names from a multitude of genres such as Jarvis Cocker, Kevin Shields from My Bloody Valentine, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip and Mammút to name a few, with many more acts still to be confirmed.
The event, which literally translates to “go North and go down”, costs 20990 ISK (around £149) for a standard 4-day pass. Sigur Ros’s four shows are sold separately, with those who have purchased tickets able to buy the full 4-day festival pass for a discounted price of 16990 ISK (£121).
