SECRET SOLSTICE 2018 announces Final Line Up!
Iceland’s Secret Solstice Festival taking place for the fifth time this June 21-24 during 96 hours of straight sunlight in the world’s most northerly capital city of Reykjavik is pleased to present its final line up and daily schedule as well as announcing the much anticipated acts for their incredible once-in-a-lifetime side parties. Adding SCI+TEC techno titan Dubfire and Iceland’s very own Bjarki to the bill, also new to Secret Solstice this year will be a special add-on event, a geothermal pool party set in the stunning surrounds of Hreppslaug swimming pool. With several bucket list side events to choose from all boasting top international and local talent as well as the addition of single day tickets for the opening concert on Thursday June 21 and Saturday June 23, there are plenty of options to experience the enchanting midnight sun in the land of fire and ice.
Secret Solstice is pleased to welcome All Day I Dream as it makes its Icelandic debut on Friday, June 22. A further addition to the line up, this event features as one of their bespoke offsite events. Lee Burridge and YokoO’s vibe perfectly compliments the magical surroundings of Hreppslaug, a geothermal swimming pool. Pool party ticket holders can look forward to complimentary drinks and lunch as well as weaving melodic melodies and infectious grooves under a sun that refuses to set.
On Saturday, June 23, Into The Glacier ticket holders will dive deep into Langjökull, Europe’s second largest glacier in a rare chance to catch Dubfire throw down his heavy-hitting techno 80 feet below the surface in a stunning blue ice cave deep inside the glacier.
For those looking for something more downtempo, The Lava Tunnel offers the perfect opportunity to explore the magic hidden inside Raufarhólshellir, a 5,200 year old lava tunnel filled with natural ice sculptures and stalactites soundtracked by some of Iceland’s leading acoustic artists. Saturday, June 23 will see soulful singer/songwriter Una Stef play to the sold out crowd, pop rock and folk singer Birgir and up and comer GDRN with her soothing and hypnotic vocals take to the intimate Lava Tunnel stage. On Sunday, June 24, 6 piece electro indie band Valdimar, the “Norah Jones of Iceland,” songstress Ása and local folk singer and feel good legend Teitur Magnússon will showcase their talents to The Lava Tunnel pass holders in what is sure to be a standout experience of the entire festival.
