Who knew National Geographic had a music division?? Not us, but apparently the music division of National Geographic Entertainment will be doing a Webcast of an open-air (Náttúra) concert featuring Sigur Ros and Bjork live from Iceland on Saturday, June 28th. To watch the show you just have to go to worldmusic.nationalgeographic.com from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET in NYC, with a start time of 8 p.m. BST/London or 7 p.m. GMT/Reykjavik.
The Náttúra concert is being held in a large park near the centre of Reykjavik, and looks to raise awareness of the impact of aluminum smelting activity on Iceland's natural landscape. Said Sigur Rós vocalist Jón Thor Birgisson "We are not a political band and don't think musicians should set themselves as spokespeople on anything at all, but sometimes you see things going on in your own back yard and find that just as a human being you cannot stand by and do nothing".
