Björk Orkestral Live 2023

July 14, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Björk Orkestral is an “unplugged” concert series by Icelandic musician Björk. Originally announced for the summer of 2020,[1] all concert dates were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[2] A four-part concert series was later announced for August 2020 at the Harpa concert hall in Reykjavik, then rescheduled to October and November 2021 due to new restrictions against the pandemic by the Icelandic government. Each date featured different musicians, instrumentation and set lists and all four concerts were live streamed to raise money for Kvennaathvarfið, a women’s shelter in Reykjavik.[3] Over 100 Icelandic musicians joined Björk on stage across the four matinee performances, which were some of the first live performances with an audience by a major international singer since COVID-19 crippled the live music industry.[4]

After she shows in Iceland, Björk embarked on a global tour of acoustic concerts, which saw her headline music festivals such as Bluedot Festival and Primavera Sound.
