REYKJAVIK, ICELAND – Not to be outdone by Miami’s Rolling Loud Fest, the entire country of Iceland is simmering with anticipation on what is now their biggest Hip Hop announcement to ever be witnessed.
Rick Ross, Big Sean, Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals have joined Iceland’s Secret Solstice Festival, which also boasts a lineup of Young M.A, Pharoahe Monch, Odd Future’s Left Brain, Roots Manuva, and the eternal legend and Queen of Funk, Chaka Khan.
If your tastes vary past rap, then the adjacent rock legends Foo Fighters and dance schedule that includes The Prodigy, Dubfire, Seth Troxler, The Black Madonna, Lane 8 and Cubicolor should also enthuse music fans.
The significance of the event lies in its title as the festival sees 72 hours of daylight in the most northerly capital city of Reykjavik during the summer solstic weekend on June 16-18.
The fest also features side events available for tourists traveling to the Icelandic music festival, such as a Midnight Sun Boat Party available for 14,900kr (approx. £111/€130/$138), and only 125 tickets to each of the event’s Secret Solstice presents Into The Glacier parties on sale at 49,900kr (approx. £373/€437/$463) (While they last, anyway.)
