The Midnight Sun Festival x Iceland

Chris Hirose [DE]


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!

“My creative process is both complex and simple. The complexities arise when I try to understand it. It’s like trying to describe the sensation of feelings; one is better suited just experiencing it for oneself. But it becomes simple when I let go and surrender to it.”

Born as the son of a German mother and a Japanese Father in Lima the capital city along the pacific coast of Peru, Chris Hirose learned to deal with antagonisms. It’s due to this dialectic that he has mastered the art of combing different cultural influences and musical concepts into a powerful and well-rounded formula. This is not only reflected in his multilayered DJ sets but also in his productions. He likes to deconstruct rhythms, loops and tunes and fuse them into a new entity. A metronomic kick drum serves as a canvas on which various sonic textures are applied to. Mixed with sublime dexterity, he moves from deft melodies and atmospheric shifts into coarse yet lush sonics. All in all his output comprises of pleasurable depths no matter if it’s geared towards the dance-floors or simply to the listener’s ears.
