15 August 2008
The east end will get a taste of the Reykjavek music event, with the likes of Teenagers, Florence And The Machine, and The Whip playing the one night mini-festival.
London Airwaves will be spread over eight venues around Shoreditch, in keeping with its Icelandic format, on Friday, 19 September.
Other acts will include Metronomy, These New Puritans, James Yuill, Wild Beasts, David E Sugar, Robots In Disguise and Sam Isaac.
A spokesman for Iceland Airwaves, and now London Airwaves, said: "Iceland Airwaves already have an international reputation as festival experts, and their annual event in Reykjavik has become an integral part of the cultural life of the city.

This year is their 10th anniversary and to celebrate they are branching out internationally and bringing the same electric experience to East London."
