Secret Solstice Festival

Posted on Categories EventsTags , ,

Secret Solstice held this weekend (June 15-18) has been referred to as the most unique music festival on earth as it is held on the summer solstice weekend when the sun never fully sets in Iceland. This midnight sun music festival is a surreal party experience where you watch over 150 bands under the Icelandic midnight sun and this year the line-up is awesome.

Several big name artists will perform like Foo Fighters, The Prodigy, Dusky, Richard Ashcroft and of course the creme de la creme of local Icelandic artists such as Agent Fresco, Auður and many many more.

The festival is held in Laugardalurinn, a peaceful outdoor recreational area in Reykjavík where families often come together on weekends. There are acts playing all day and night and you will see locals bring their kids during the day and early evening hours. There will be 6 stages named from the nordic, viking mythology and lots of vendors and delicious food trucks.

If partying under the midnight sun isn´t enough musical adventure for you there will be several side events offered such as the once-in-a-lifetime party inside a glacier or a lava tunnel. And last but not least the Midnight Sun boat party.
