Iceland’s Midnight Sun music and culture festival, Secret Solstice, is back for its sixth edition this year. The festival will take place from June 21st-23rd in Reykjavik, Iceland as it has the past five years. In addition to the music, stunning glacier and lava tunnel parties will follow suit. 

As it takes place over the fabled Midnight Sun weekend during the summer solstice, festivalgoers will experience nearly 72 hours of sunlight. Because of how close Iceland is situated to the arctic circle, the nation gets the full-on effect of seasonal changes on a unique scale, resulting in this phenomenon.

The festival dropped a stacked phase one lineup earlier in the year with headliners Robert Plant & the Sensational Shape Shifters, Martin Garrix, and Rita Ora across its three days in the capital city. In addition, organizers have made some noteworthy additions to that lineup with phase two. 

The legendary Black Eyed Peas will bring their irresistible blend of pop and hip-hop to Secret Solstice’s Valhalla main stage on Saturday,  while the queen of punk rock and Robert Plant & the Sensational Shape Shifters will headline the festival’s final night on the main stage. Hip-hop icons The Sugarhill Gang with Grandmaster Melle Mel & Scorpio (of the Furious 5) will also be joining the festivities.
