The first annual Secret Solstice music festival in Reykjavík, Iceland promised 24 hours of sunlight and a stacked lineup with big international headliners like Massive Attack, Disclosure and Schoolboy Q. The rest of the lineup was very diverse and included tons of local talent too. I shot almost 50 bands over three days. Here are some of my personal highlights of the action!
