SECRET SOLSTICE festival-goers will be able to party for longer at the 15,000-capacity event’s new after-hours programme.

Once the mainstage closes at 11.45pm, ticket-holders will have access to Ragnarock (cap. 1,000), held at Reykjavik’s Hard Rock Café, which  organisers transform into a two-floor space with a line-up of DJs running until 4.30am. 

A series of other afterparties in venues around the city will also take place.

“At the time of the festival it does not get dark in Iceland because the sun doesn’t set. So Ragnarock will be the only place where there will be darkness,” says the event’s Kelechi Amadi. ‘We know our audience likes to party late, so this will give them the chance to do that.”

The four stage festival takes place on 21-23 June in the Laugardalur area of the Reykjavik. The line-up includes Black Eyed Peas, Robert Plant and the Sensational Spaceshifters, Martin Garrix, Rita Ora, and Patti Smith. 

Weekend tickets cost 19,990 krone ($162).
