Event Details:

Last summer’s Secret Solstice festival took place over the summer solstice weekend in Reykjavík, Iceland, accompanied by 72 hours of continuous daylight. Festival organizers turned to ID Electronic and its event partner, Hljodx, who deployed numerous audio and lighting components from Harman Professional. Some 17,000 attended, with featured artists including Radiohead, among others. And with Foo Fighters, The Prodigy, Rick Ross, Big Sean, Chaka Khan and Richard Ashcroft in the lineup (plus side events in a Lava Tunnel, on a boat and inside a glacier), the crowds are expected to return for this year’s event, set for June 16-18.
