Secret Solstice will be held this year from June 21st-23rd at Laugardalur recreation area. Other international acts that are so far scheduled to perform include Rita Ora, Martin Garrix, Pussy Riot and Foreign Beggars, among others.
Plant, the Golden God of classic rock n’ roll, famously penned “Immigrant Song” with bandmate Jimmy Page during their 1970 summer tour of Iceland, Bath and Germany. The opening performance of the tour was held on June 22nd, 1970 in Reykjavík.
Recalling back to the song’s composition, Plant has stated: “We weren’t being pompous… We did come from the land of the ice and snow. […] The university prepared a concert hall for us and it was phenomenal. The response from the kids was remarkable and we had a great time. ‘Immigrant Song’ was about that trip and it was the opening track on the album that was intended to be incredibly different.”
