bjoerk.com confirmes concert on june 28th!

Ich sag nur Karma, Karma, Karma ... (sorry, sorry natalie, schnell flug buchen !!!!)


We are pleased to announce an outdoor concert featuring Björk, Sigur Rós, Ólöf Arnalds and special foreign guests. The concert will take place in Reykjavík, Iceland, on the June 28th. The exact location will be disclosed later on.

The goal of the concert is to raise awareness on environmental issues in Iceland:

"I spent for example 2 months in South-America and there you saw the poor doing recycling. We can't be 30 years behind, we need to work together on this and preferably we should be leading the way."

"Too often battles being fought for nature turn into something negative and into mudslinging. We will not go that way, we are not saying that this and that is forbidden, we are rather asking "what about all these other possibilites?".
