Ásgeir Holds Concert on Esja

Icelandic musician Ásgeir and his band performed on top of Esja mountain outside of Reykjavík on Friday night.

Many of the attendees were transported to the top of Esja by helicopter while others made the journey on foot.

This was the second year in a row that a concert, sponsored by telecommunications company NOVA and Helo, was held on Esja.

A video from the event can be viewed here.

Esja, which is 914 meters (3,000 ft) tall, lies about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) north of Reykjavík. The mountain is a popular destination among hikers.
