Iceland’s Secret Solstice festival has been making headlines since last year for their incredibly unique side events, as add-ons to their main event. These have included the world’s only performances inside a glacier since last year, and this year the world’s only concert 400 feet underground inside a dormant volcano.
Now, only a few weeks out from their third edition, Secret Solstice has released the impressive lineups for almost all of their side events, including a brand new party they’re putting on for the first time.
Guy Gerber has just been named as the act to play the incredible Secret Solstice presents Into The Glacier event, within a 550-meter long tunnel inside Europe’s second largest glacier Langökull. Along with this, Secret Solstice announces that Guy Gerber and artists from his label Rumors will also be the first acts scheduled to play Secret Solstice festival in 2017.
For the lucky 100 that have secured tickets to the event’s exclusive Secret Lagoon party, there’s the massive news that Kerri Chandler will be the act scheduled to play this event. The American house music legend will play one of Iceland’s most stunning locations in the town of Flúðir, with attendees relaxing in the country’s oldest volcanically-heated geothermal lagoon.
Although these side events sold out in record time this year, those who missed out need not stress. Along with the artist announcements, Secret Solstice have just revealed their new Horizon Party, at a secret location just south of Reykjavik for a series of intimate dance soirées.
The three Horizon Parties will be held on June 16th, 17th, and 18th with Guy Gerber, Ryan Crosson, and Skream headlining these respectively. With such incredible acts, and only 200 available tickets per show at 7,900kr (approx. £44/$63/€56), they’re likely to sell out extremely quickly.
