We can’t help gushing over Iceland…the diverse landscapes (see Steve Casimiro’s photos), the geothermal resources, and, of course, the innovative music we’ve come to associate with the Kentucky-size island just a four-hour flight away (plan your own trip).
Today, Nat Geo Music, the music division of National Geographic Entertainment, will Webcast an open-air Náttúra concert live from Reykjavik. Two of the world’s most important and visionary musical entities, Björk and Sigur Rós, will headline the free concert.
The event will be available exclusively at worldmusic.nationalgeographic.com from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET (begins at 8 p.m. BST/London or 7 p.m. GMT/Reykjavik).
All of the performances will be during daylight, with Iceland’s capital city and dramatic rolling scenery providing a perfect backdrop to what is expected to be one of the biggest concerts the country has seen. The Náttúra concert looks to raise awareness of the impact of the growing aluminum smelting activity on Iceland’s natural landscape.
