Sigur Rós, the Icelandic post-rock band from Reykjavík, are celebrating the summer solstice in a way that only a post-rock band from Reykjavík could celebrate; a 24 hour trip around Iceland streaming live.
#sigurrosrouteone streaming on 20 Jun 2016 and the band are driving around route one – the coastal ring road of Iceland – and are composing as they go. Being the summer solstice in Iceland means it will be light all day and night. The event is being broadcast on national television in Iceland and streaming live on YouTube for the rest of us.
It’s a 1332km journey that they will drive anti-clockwise, passing famous landmarks, including vatnajökull, europe’s largest ice-sheet; the glacial lagoon, jökulsárlón; as well as the east fjords and the desolate black sands of möðrudalur.
