Secret Solstice, Iceland’s Midnight Sun music and culture festival, is pleased to present their phase two lineup for its sixth edition this June 21-23, 2019 in Reykjavik, Iceland during 72 hours of non-stop sunlight. Performing in Iceland for the first time, Secret Solstice is honored to welcome legendary hip-hop/pop group Black Eyed Peas. Also announced is the queen of punk rock Patti Smith and Band alongside hip hop icons The Sugarhill Gang with Grandmaster Melle Mel & Scorpio (of the Furious 5). These acts add to previously announced headliners Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters, Martin Garrix, Rita Ora and Morcheeba. With 20 new acts including Sólstafir, Vök, Hatari and artists from Iceland’s the 101 Boys collective, Secret Solstice is again shaping up to be a standout event on the summer festival calendar in one of the world’s most unique and breathtaking corners.

Recently returning with the release of their seventh studio album ‘Masters of the Sun’, headliners Black Eyed Peas — who reigned the music charts with hits including “Where is the Love?” and “Let’s Get it Started” — will bring their irresistible blend of pop and hip-hop to Secret Solstice’s Valhalla main stage on Saturday, June 22. On Sunday, June 23, the godmother of punk rock and punk poetry, singer-songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Patti Smith and Band will headline the festival’s final night on the main stage. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the first rap single to become a Top 40 hit, “Rapper’s Delight,” The Sugarhill Gang will team up with hip hop pioneers Grandmaster Melle Mel & Scorpio of the Furious 5 to form Supergroup as they take to the Secret Solstice main stage on the festival’s Saturday night.

Attendees can also look forward to some of Iceland’s finest established and up-and-coming talent. Newly added artists include Sólstafir with their unique blend of metal, melody and hard rock, indie-electro band Vök, art-pop punk band Hatari, rising Reykjavik rapper Birnir, up-and-comer Birgir Hákon, the young and charismatic Floni, celebrated collaborator Joey Christ, music mogul Logi Pedro, creative hip hop act Sturla Atlas and the electrifying hip hop duo JóiPé & Króli. Also performing will be chamber pop/indie-rock band Árstíðir, singer-songwriter Ása, and experimental DJ Carla Rose. Rounding out the latest Icelandic additions are new age inspired mystical Icelandic language band, Grúska Babúska, soulful vocalist Una Stef, classic rock group The Vintage Caravan and synth-pop drum and bass duo Warmland.

For the high-end festival experience, Secret Solstice also announces the return of its limited availability luxury pass Oðinn with added benefits for 2019. What’s included? Access to the VIP pop-up lounge which offers whisky and chocolate tasting and massages, prime viewing area, fast track and priority entry, backstage access, a limited edition commemorative Óðinn festival pack, complimentary food and drinks on-site with more perks to be announced.
