Forty-nine years since Led Zeppelin’s first performance in the country, founding member Robert Plant is returning to headline Secret Solstice, in the capital Reykjavik.

Plant and his Sensational Shapeshifters band will be one of the headliners at the 12,000-capacity event, which takes place from 21 to 23 June.

Other acts confirmed include Rita Ora, Martin Garrix, Morcheeba, Foreign Beggars, Pussy Riot and Mr G.

“For five years, Secret Solstice has brought together diverse line-ups featuring powerhouse and emerging acts, exclusive glacier and lava tunnel parties, and a luxury music festival experience,” says a spokesperson for the festival.

Last year’s artistes included Stormzy, Bonnie Tyler, Slayer, Steve Aoki, Clean Bandit and Gucci Mane.

Ticket range from 15,990 krona ($133) for an early-bird pass to 29,990 krona ($250) for VIP access.
