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!

Marbs (Desert Hearts) [US]

The sun fades, the last glitter trails of light hit the shimmering and spinning dusty desert disco ball. A throng of dedicated and debauched hard partying animals hurtle their way towards center stage. Veteran party-goers make their way to the dance floor, no questions asked, while whispers of “King of Darkness … house … techno … psychedelia” spread through the new night sky. The melodic notes travel through space. Ethereal beauty pours from the stacked Funktion One speakers, waving its way through the crowd. Your eyes close, your body grooves, and thuds of tech house begin to write a story for all to enjoy. Dark, driving, thumping techno is paired with mystical, beautiful, melodic house. That passionately and expertly paired genre-bending style is the only way to describe Marbs’ signature sound.

Having grown up in Southern California with the now notoriously known motley crew called Desert Hearts, Marbs, a lifelong artist and music enthusiast, was primarily influenced by legends like Pink Floyd and Tool, while also listening to underground hip hop, reggae, and rock, displaying his no holds barred love for all genres from an early age. Flash forward to San Francisco’s Love Fest, art cars roamed the city, house music spilled from the speakers, and Marbs’ musical tastes were forever changed thanks to ruler of the house music game and party guru, Lee Burridge.

After years of DJing the San Diego, LA, and Burning Man party circuits, the Desert Hearts crew took it upon themselves to throw their own kind of party. One built on love, acceptance, and strictly, House and Techno. Their 2012 one time gathering of 200 people in the Mojave has now turned into one of the most talked about and adored boutique festivals in North America. None of which could be possible without Marbs, lovingly coined the”Papa Bear”, he is truly the backbone of the project behind the scenes, where he runs most of the logistics with a steady hand and a humble heart. Marbs continues to hone his production skills while also hand drawing all of the label’s artwork and holding true to his artistic roots.

Marbs’ musical talents and humble dj presence commands any dance floor with sounds of mystical darkness and whimsical tribal rhythms; the night sky is the limit for this King of Darkness. With a sound like no other, a heart of gold, and a determination matched by few, Marbs is sure to lead this movement of love until the very happy end.
