Concert to Save Ingólfstorg Square Held Tomorrow

An organization founded to preserve Ingólfstorg Square in its present form will stage a concert there tomorrow. The square is a popular meeting place in Reykjavik’s city center. The concert’s aim is to raise awareness of the cause, visir.is reports.

Opposition to the city council’s current plans to build a five story hotel at Vallarstræti Street is rising. The plan entails moving two buildings across the street and into the adjacent Ingólfstorg Square. Also, Reykjavik’s main concert venue NASA will be demolished.

The group hired architects at Gláma Kím to estimate the detailed land-use plan. Until September 11th, formal objections to the proposal can be handed in.

The concert will take place at 2 PM tomorrow, Saturday. Among the performers are Páll Óskar, Buff and Hjálmar.
