Secret Solstice Announces First Lineup for 2016



From June 17 – 19, 2016, the inimitable Secret Solstice Festival makes a return to Iceland’s metropolitan breaktaking capital, Reykjavík, for its third annual edition. For three days, and 72 hours of consecutive daylight, some of music’s finest talents will take over the world’s most northerly capital city, for what critics have dubbed “the most unique festival on Earth”.

Using Iceland’s incredible landscapes, volcanic springs and jaw-dropping glaciers as fitting backdrops to some of the world’s best music from Iceland and abroad, the breathtaking natural scenery of this Scandinavian island is an obvious sell for any adventurous festivalgoer seeking a party destination like no other. For a glimpse of what’s in store next June, check out Secret Solstice Festival’s Official 2015 Aftermovie below.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
