Secret Solstice 2015 – First Major Lineup Announcement
 
Less than 9% of the festival’s limited allocation of discounted 3-day passes are left at 15,900 ISK (approx. £80/$120/€105), and these are expected to sell out quickly with the new lineup additions. Potential festivalgoers are told to snap up passes as soon as possible to beat the price next price rise.
 
For those unfamiliar with the event, Secret Solstice Festival has been dubbed the ‘Midnight Sun’ music festival, due to the event being held over the summer solstice weekend in Reykjavík, Iceland, when the days are longest. In Iceland, this means the sun never fully sets, giving festival attendees a spectacular natural light-show for the duration of the event. And crazy energy alongside it.  Festival attendees to Secret Solstice can also take the chance to experience Iceland’s spectacular tourism locations while in Iceland, including the Golden Circle tour and the world-famous Blue Lagoon. More information coming soon!
 
The full lineup for Secret Solstice 2015 as it stands with the new additions can be found below. More information can be found on the Secret Solstice website, or via the festival’s official Facebook page.
