Iceland’s Secret Solstice has just dropped their fifth and final lineup announcement for 2016, as well as announcing the day-by-day schedule for artists performing over the summer solstice from June 16-19.

The recent announcement takes the third-year festival’s lineup to a total of 170 artists.

Artists announced for 2016, including Radiohead, Die Antwoord, Deftones, and many more, Secret Solstice has expanded their lineup with the addition of 42 new names, including AD/D, Serge Devant, Osunlade, Pavan (of Foreign Beggars), Paul Brown, and Sinistarr. Also added is American model and artist Alexandra Richards, daughter of legendary Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, who will be performing a DJ set at the event.

Also announced is the day-by-day lineup for the event’s four days in Reykjavík. Radiohead is scheduled to play the festival on Friday, June 17th, during Iceland’s national holiday celebrations. Deftones have been billed to headline Saturday, June 18th with South African dance-rap act Die Antwoord, as well as Iceland’s Of Monsters And Men featuring on the event’s closing festivities on Sunday, June 19th.

Secret Solstice is also following up on the tradition it started in 2015, with a secret headline act scheduled for the opening day of the event on June 16. While it’s still anyone’s guess who it will be this year, the festival surprised their patrons last year with the inimitable Busta Rhymes filling this slot.

The full lineup for Secret Solstice 2016 can be found below. Full festival passes covering the entire four days of the event start at 24,900kr (approx. £137/$200USD/€177) and can be purchased from the official Secret Solstice website.
