Whilst over in Reykjavík, Iceland with his bandmates in Deftones to perform a headline slot on the Saturday line-up of this year’s Secret Solstice weekend festival, Chino Moreno will be making history by performing an intimate set inside a volcano, for what has been called Secret Solstice presents Inside The Volcano.
Moreno will be performing a super intimate acoustic set to just 20 paying ticket holders, 400ft underground within Iceland’s dormant Thrihnuagigur volcano on June 18th 2016. The event sold out within days before any news of an artist to perform the set was confirmed and, though performances have been made in the past on volcanos, this will be the first time ever it has happened within one.
The festival organisers have also revealed Icelandic act Snorri Helgason will also play a few songs acoustically, opening the performance for Moreno. He will then perform a headline slot with his bandmates in Deftones later that day.
This year’s Secret Solstice festival is held between June 16th-19th 2016 in Reykjavík, Iceland. Tickets for the festival are still available from 24,900kr (approx £139/$203/€178), and can be purchased from the festival’s official website (here).
