The Midnight Sun Festival x Iceland

We're very sorry to announce that Secret Solstice will no longer be taking place this year and will be postponed until 2021.

We have been closely monitoring the situation for the past few weeks and unfortunately, it is now clear that the festival cannot take place this year. This decision has not been made lightly, but the health and wellbeing of our Secret Solstice community is our main priority.

We will be back next summer with more energy than ever on the 25 - 27 June 2021. We're working with our current artists who will now perform at our 2021 edition including headliners Cypress Hill, Blackbear, Lil Pump, Primal Scream, Regard, Ensími, Nýdönsk and more. Further details of artists will be released very soon.

All tickets purchased for our Secret Solstice 2020 will be valid for our new 2021 dates. If you still wish to refund your ticket, our ticketing operator will be in contact regarding the refund process very soon. Please bear with us during this busy time and only contact our ticketing operator if you haven't received any communication within 5 working days. If you wish to keep your ticket and join us in 2021, your ticket will be rolled over automatically.

We thank our community of festival goers, artists and partners for your continued support and we send our love to all.

Stay safe and see you under the midnight sun!
