Columbia College adjunct professor Althea Legaspi fell in love with Reykjavik Iceland at first sight when she decided to venture to Iceland Airwaves Music Festival in 2007. She’s been returning to the festival every year since covering it for a variety of publications. This year, however, is different . . . she’s bringing along eight Columbia College students for some firsthand experience in covering an international music festival. A collaboration of Radio, Journalism, Arts Entertainment Media Management, and Audio Arts and Acoustics students will hit the ground running October 12th. Nicki Butler sat down with the students to hear about the process of preparing plus just what the students want to take away from the trip.
