Harpa’s Eldborg concert hall hosted some of Iceland’s hottest artists—joined by Patti Smith and Lykke Li—last week at the Stopp - Let’s Protect the Park benefit concert.

Organized by director Darren Aronofsky—the concert coincided with the premiere of his film Noah, which was filmed in Iceland in 2012—Björk, the Iceland Nature Conservation Association (INCA), the Icelandic Environment Association (Landvernd) and Grímur Atlason, manager of Iceland Airwaves music festival, the project raised ISK 35 million (USD 310,000, EUR 225,650), including ISK 24 million donated by the Pálmi Jónsson Nature Protection Fund, for the protection of the Icelandic highlands.

Here are some photos from the event.
