The Midnight Sun Festival x Iceland

Day one roundup – Secret Solstice 2017

The opening ceremony to Secret Solstice festival 2017 took place yesterday and went without a hitch! Around 8.000 people danced to the funky tunes of Chaka Khan under the midnight sun but we still have three whole days to go and expecting around 18.000 music-lovers.

The energy at the festival is better than ever and that could very likely be due to our shaman JoaqoPelli who blessed the festival before the opening ceremony and played his Native American flute for our wonderful guests.

Tonight the Valhalla stage will welcome the legendary rockstars of Foo Fighters, Richard Ashcroft and Iceland’s very own Agent Fresco. If you head over to Gimli you can witness the immortal rapper Pharoahe Monch, who brought us “Simon Says”, one of the most recognisable rap songs of our generation.
