FOO FIGHTERS, THE PRODIGY, RICK ROSS and BIG SEAN are among the headliners set for the SECRET SOLSTICE 2017, which will gtake place JUNE 16th through 18th at a 5,000+ year-old underground RAUFARHOLSHELLIR LAVE TUNNEL in REYKJAVIK, ICELAND.
Others scheduled to perform include CHAKA KHAN, SETH TROXLER, KERRI CHANDLER and RICHARD ASHCROFT, among others.
For those who attend SECRET SOLSTICE, it’s definitely the fabled MIDNIGHT SUN that has generated the most palpable sense of wonder. Due to ICELAND’s close proximity to the ARCTIC, the sun never sets during the summer solstice weekend when the festival is held, meaning guests experience never-ending daylight for the entirety of the event.
ICELAND exploits the very power of the planet itself, with the abundant volcanic activity being used to generate the renewable geothermal energy that powers almost the entire country. It’s this power that provides all on-site energy needs for SECRET SOLSTICE, which is one of the reasons the event was very easily able to achieve carbon neutral status, something it’s held for two consecutive years now.
SECRET SOLSTICE festival director FRED OLAFSSON commented, “We try to lessen the impact of the festival in all areas, whether it’s partnering up with other carbon neutral brands like ICELANDIC GLACIAL water, or working with TOYOTA ICELAND who provide us with hybrid vehicles.”
Those planning on attending the fourth edition of SECRET SOLSTICE can book now via EVENTBRITE or TIX, starting at 24,900kr (approx. £183/€210/$224) for a full festival three-day event pass or to purchase a deluxe package deals go here.
