What might we need to know or want to do that a guide book might not mention? With what seems like so much to see in a short amount of time, what's not to be missed? [more inside]

Meeting people at/for Iceland Airwaves

I'll be heading to Iceland Airwaves next month in Reykjavik. I've never been to the country or festival before, and would love to know/meet a few kindly people to enjoy my time with. Where would you suggest meeting them, either during or in advance of my trip? Other tips for Icelandic tourism are welcome as well.
