He played three songs inside the volcano in Reykjavik
Deftones‘ Chino Moreno performed inside a volcano in Reykjavik, Iceland over the weekend, becoming the first musician to achieve the feat.
The event was part of the Secret Solstice Festival and took place in the Thrihnuagigur volcano. Twenty fans watched Moreno play 400 feet beneath the surface, inside the dormant magma chamber.
Fans had to pay £1,380 to attend the show and trekked for two and a half hours across lava fields to reach the volcano. Those present were sent down to the chamber, where temperatures were below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, on a converted window cleaning lift.
Moreno played only three songs in the volcano, with Icelandic singer-songwriter Snorri Helgason joining him for the short set.
For the first time in my life, I wish I was in a volcano. Congrats to #ChinoMoreno, the man! For being the FIRST ARTIST to perform inside of a volcano! One hell of a birthday weekend for him! #Deftones #Change #Iceland #VolcanoPerformance @deftonesdaily @deftonesband
