Iceland’s Secret Solstice Festival Announces Final Lineup + The Warehouse Project Takeover

Iceland’s Secret Solstice festival has just dropped their third and final lineup announcement for their fourth edition with 35 new names including legendary American hip hop recording artist Ab-Soul. Set over the summer solstice weekend June 15-18, 2017, in the center of Iceland’s capital city Reykjavik, festival guests will experience four full days of never-ending daylight due to the close proximity to the Arctic Circle, which has wowed foreign festival guests for the past three years.

With a massive range of international and Icelandic artists announced for 2017 including the Foo Fighters, The Prodigy, Richard Ashcroft, Chaka Khan, Kerri Chandler, and Dubfire, plus a heavy hitting international hip hop presence with Rick Ross, Big Sean, Anderson .Paak, Young M.A, and Pharoahe Monch, this is one of Secret Solstice’s most exciting lineups to date. The Icelandic hip hop scene is also not far behind with the announcement of unforgettable innovators XXX Rottweiler, youngster Herra Hnetusmjör, and female rap duo Cyber, which have been stirring the Reykjavík rap scene since their debut EP, ‘Crap’ was released last year.

Also announced is the Icelandic punk band Tappi Tíkarrass, formed in 1980 and is widely considered the first serious music project of now world renowned singer Björk. With their last public performance dated in 1987, their appearance at Secret Solstice 2017 will be a highly anticipated performance. Adding to the punk side are newcomers Hórmónar who have been on the rise since claiming first place at the Icelandic Music Experiments in 2016. Another band of that same competition, Agent Fresco who are the only Icelandic band to combine pop, alternative, art, metal, and math-rock, are also announced.

For lovers of dance music, The Warehouse Project, an illustrious series of British club nights specializing in house, techno, trance and electro music, will be going to Hel on Saturday, June 17 from 9pm with special guests: Exos, Kiasmos, Krysko & Greg Lord, Nitin back-to-back Droog, and Thugfucker.

For international ravers, stepping into Hel, the specialized night-time venue of Secret Solstice is an experience not to be missed with additional stage takeovers from Anjunadeep, Art’s House, ATG, Circoloco, Crew Love, and SCI+TEC.
