Reykjavík, Iceland -- The inaugural Secret Solstice will spread its lineup across five stages over the course of its three days. The stage names, inspired by Norse mythology, include Valhalla (the name of the 'heaven' afterlife in Norse mythology), Gimli (the place where survivors of Ragnarok are supposed to live), Askur (the name of the first man in Norse mythology), Embla (the name of the first woman in Norse mythology), and Hel (the name of 'hell' afterlife in Norse mythology).
There's not too much of a clear distinction dividing the five stages in terms of talent, though the festival's headliners skew clearly to the Valhalla Stage, which we expect to thus be the largest. Massive Attack, Banks, Múm, Disclosure, and Schoolboy Q will all play the stage along with many local Icelandic acts. The Hel Stage, featuring acts like Rob Da Bank and Jamie Jones, will be hosted by The Warehouse Project.
