Secret Solstice: Day One

The Secret Solstice festival kicked off yesterday and Laugardalur park in Reykjavik drew in colourful crowds. Revellers danced outside in the midnight sun to bands such as Retro Stefson, GusGus, Kelis, Thugfucker and HAM. 

The impressive setting provided everything you need for a music festival: food, drinks, shops including a glow-stick shops and even a barber shop.

Another attraction was a hot tub in the shape of a beer glass.

Here are a few images from yesterday's atmosphere captured by our photographer Eggert Jóhannesson.
