Icelandic stars unite at free outdoor concert
The open-air Nattura festival was staged to raise awareness about the impact of Aluminium smelting activity on Iceland’s landscape.
The increasingly chilly temperatures did not dampen the spirits of the good-natured crowd, who basked in the super-bright sunlight as Radium – a soundscape project featuring members of Ghostigital, including Bjork‘s ex-Sugarcubes bandmate Einar Örn – and folk warbler Ólöf Arnalds warmed up the audience.
Sigur Ros, sporting elaborate headgear, then played a set largely drawn from their new album ‘Með Suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust’.
They were joined by Bjork, who drummed on the band’s track ‘Gobbledigook’.
The singer then took to the stage for her own spell-binding set, despite suffering from a bad cold, which featured Einar Örn on trumpet for ‘I Miss You’.
