This Research paper is about Iceland and its music industry. It looks at the main income of musicians, how is the music industry built up and what can be improved. It goes over popular venues and festivals and where the industry lies. The main finding is how hard it is for musicians to get their music played on radio, and that most people listen to music on radio. There is clearly that somethings have to be done to support Icelandic artists and help them develop as artist and to break into the industry. Iceland does not have to look far for ideas to improve the radio laws, for example Canada has a really good system Iceland could try to implement or even look over to France.
