Let me preface this by disclaiming that yes, this is legitimate news and not some poor form of satire – this is actually happening.
Chino Moreno will become the first musician to ever perform inside a volcano as part of this coming weekend’s Secret Solstice Festival in Reykjavík, Iceland, where Moreno and 20 of his fans will be
sacrificed to the Norse creature Surtr to appease him lowered 400 feet inside the Thrihnuagigur volcano.
Whilst it might seem like a bad idea to perform inside a dormant volcano, Secret Solstice organisers have noted that Thrihnuagigur hasn’t erupted in 4,000 years, nor has it been spelt or pronounced correctly in that time.
Taking place June 16th – 19th, Secret Solstice, held in the country’s capital of Reykjavik, this third year of the festival boasts a lineup featuring Radiohead, Of Monsters and Men, Die Antwoord, Flatbush Zombies, Action Bronson, and Róisín Murphy, with Moreno’s Deftones also set to perform.
