Iceland Airwaves Recap and Future Festivals

I saw Briet at Iceland Airwaves and she had a cadre of Icelandic Generation Z "Swifties" singing along to her beautiful songs in Icelandic. Her music felt like Americana in Icelandic. I absolutely loved her!

It was so much fun to be out with my wife - no kiddos! My master plan for 2024 is to go to lots of music festivals without the kids. Of course, it has to be done the super-geek way: I am going to write up a program to pull event data and match it up with music I like from the KEXP DJ Favorites Dashboard. I'll have to pull that data off APIs. Browsing websites just isn't sporting. Here's a quick review of two free event APIs.

Looks promising. Waiting for info on a developer key. They have a well-documented API.

Seat Geek -

Easy to set up. No BS around getting API keys. Great documentation. Just use this.
