Secret Solstice’s 2017 opening ceremony will be held on Thursday the 15th of June, with all full festival pass holders (including VIP and other higher level tickets) being granted access by default. However, for those wanting just to attend just this event, a super-limited number of tickets will be opened up to the public.

The Queen Of Funk herself Chaka Khan will be joined by Icelandic acts SSSól, and Fox Train Safari for this extraordinary event on Thursday the 15th of June 2017, the day before the full festival was scheduled to open. And for existing ticketholders – or those purchasing a full festival ticket in the future – comes at no extra cost.

“In particular, we’re thrilled to have legendary local super act SSSól attending our opening ceremony, as part of their final tour marking the band’s 30 th anniversary.” Said Secret Solstice’s founder Fred Olafsson when speaking about the announcement.

In addition, Native American and Basque Gypsy artist JoaqoPelli, who hails from the USA, will open and bless the downtown Reykjavík event site before festivities begin, in what will be a magical and awakening way to kick off Secret Solstice’s 2017 event.

And finally, as has become something of a tradition for Secret Solstice since 2015, and unannounced secret guest will also be scheduled to play the festival’s 2017 opening ceremony. While the act won’t likely be revealed until the day of the ceremony, the previous two years has seen Busta Rhymes and Sister Sledge filling this slot for the event.
