Formed over 5,000 years ago during a volcanic eruption, the Raufarhollshellir cave system is a magnificent phenomenon of nature, which instills a sense of wonder in all who journey within it. And for the first time ever, you can be part of this ultra-special concert, in this unique natural space.
The multi-talented musician Högni has vast experience when it comes to Icelandic music having performed with GusGus and Hjaltalín. Snorri Helgason’s music is heartfelt and introspective, yet universal, a highly relatable exploration of his personal struggles and emotions. His latest and fourth solo album, Vittu til, has received very good reviews and he’ll most definitely give festival-goers a sneak peak.
Helgi Björnsson is a famous Icelandic singer with more than 30 years experience performing with his band, SSSól. Dividing his work between film, stage and music for the past years he always manages to put on a great show!
Ása has been singing and recording since her early teenage years, and has now embarked on her solo career. Inspired by the likes of Norah Jones and Johnny Cash, Ása’s music will create an uplifting feeling within you and a immediate desire to lose yourself in the rhythm and the lyrics.
At only 39,900kr per ticket, and with only 50 tickets available a small handful of guests will be transported from Reykjavík to the location, provided two alcoholic drinks on site included in the price, given a tour of the cave system by The Lava Tunnel’s incredible guides, and then wowed by one of the most unique concerts on the planet.
