Fricke said that Björk Gudmundsdottir attended many concerts, for example Omar Souleyman and Ghostdigital. Fricke mentiones that Björk bought her Airwaves ticket herself.
The German band Kraftwerk fascinated the editor, and he said that he noticed that the band member Ralf Hütter was playing all the time, but Fricke thought that the concert would started by simply pressing a button.
Fricke mentioned the Icelandic band Grísalappalísu as a band that was likely to make it. He was also fond of Ghostdigital, and he said that he could not imagine the Airwaves festival without that band. He was also happy with Amiina, he for example wrote:
"Amiina's latest EP, The Lighthouse Project, features music that originated during a 2009 tour of Icelandic lighthouses. They didn't perform anything from it in this set, but everything they did play was, like a stiff sea breeze, bracing and uplifting."
