Iceland’s fifth annual Secret Solstice Festival is surely the party of the summer concert goers will not want to miss, and the official final lineup, side party headliners, and daily schedule have just been announced.
Secret Solstice Festival stands apart from every other musical event this summer, with bucket-list experiences like a tour of a 5,200-year-old lava tunnel, and a musical performance inside a glacier. It is also an event for those looking to do something luxurious, as ticket packages range from $1,519 to a staggering $1 million. Also dubbed as the ‘Midnight Sun Music Festival,’ it allows music fans to party throughout the Summer Solstice – where there is 96 hours of straight sunlight and the sun almost never sets in the country.
The festival will take place from June 21 to 24 in the city of Reykjavik.
New additions to the lineup include the techno group Dubfire and Iceland’s own Bjarki, as well as All Day I Dream, who will make their Icelandic debut on June 22. Other additions to the lineup are United Kingdom’s Maxxi Soundsystem, back by popular demand, along with Anton Fitz & Martin Loose-Cuts, DJ Caspa, Cole, Colin Perkins, Daniel Hamilton, Dino Gardiakos, Get Funky DJs, Just William, Martin Marson, as well as Iceland’s Ateria, Intr0beatz, Mókrókar, Orang Volante (Live), PJ Glaze, Rix, Röskva, Skrattar, and Þorri.
Lee Burridge will add something special to the magical surroundings of the just-announced geothermal swimming pool in the countryside. The festival describes the pool party, set to take place in Hreppslaug, Skorradalur as “weaving melodies and infectious grooves under a sun that refuses to set.” To catch an intimate set, fans have the opportunity to see Dubfire perform inside Langjökull, Europe’s second largest glacier, as well as The Lava Tunnel, which will feature concerts from local folk singer Teiur Magnusson, indie band Valdimar, and songstress Asa.
Headlining acts Steve Aoki and Bonnie Tyler will take the stage Thursday, followed by Gucci Mane, Dream Wife, and Dubfire on Friday. Slayer, who are on their last world tour, will perform on Saturday, along with Death From Above, Earthgang, and J. Philip. Stormzy, Clean Bandit, and 6lack will close out the festival on Sunday.
