Deftones’ Chino Moreno To Perform 400 Feet Underground Inside Icelandic Volcano

Iceland’s Secret Solstice festival has a huge lineup of over 177 acts comprising mostly small European bands, but the fest has bagged a few notable headliners like Radiohead, Of Monsters And Men, and Deftones. Deftones are set to headline on 6/18, but frontman Chino Moreno has a performance of his own that may top his band’s. Moreno will be the artist to play Secret Solstice’s Inside The Volcano show, which means he’ll be 400 feet inside the earth performing an intimate acoustic set for 20 Secret Solstice ticket holders. The guests will be lowered into the volcano’s dormant magma chamber. This is the first time any artist has performed publicly inside a volcano, though there have been many from on top of volcanoes in Hawaii and Gran Canaria. The festival maintains that there is very little chance that the Volcano could erupt as it hasn’t erupted for 4,000 years according to geologists. Personally, I would need absolutely zero chance of my festival experience ending in a fiery lava death, but damn is that going to be some exclusive social media “content.”
