Secret Solstice, the world’s most unique music festival held over the Midnight Sun weekend, has revealed the phase one lineup for its sixth edition in the land of fire and ice this June 21-23, 2019 in Reykjavik, Iceland. Performing across the 72-hours of non-stop daylight during the summer solstice weekend for the first time ever, Secret Solstice presents Robert Plant & the Sensational Shape Shifters, Martin Garrix, and Rita Ora as festival headliners across its three days in the capital city.

For five years, Secret Solstice has brought together diverse lineups featuring powerhouse and emerging acts, exclusive glacier and lava tunnel parties, and a luxury music festival experience.
