The Secret Solstice festival, taking place June 16th through June 19th in Iceland, will feature performances from Radiohead, Of Monsters and Men, Deftones, and other bands… but those performances will not be taking place within a volcano. While in Iceland, Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno will be the main act at Secret Solstice’s Inside the Volcano show, which most certainly will be taking place within a volcano.
The frontman will travel 400 feet below the earth, in a volcano, to perform an acoustic set for 20 ticket-holders, who will be lowered into the volcano’s dormant magma chamber.
This will be the first time that an artist has performed from within a volcano, although musicians have previously performed on top of volcanoes.
Geologists say that the volcano has not erupted in 4,000 years, and festival organizers promise that it will not erupt while Moreno is inside of it.
