Coming to Iceland for the Secret Solstice Festival was quite the adventure. The scene was 24 hours of sunlight… Seven days and no nights. Time stood still and reality blended into infinite moments along the forever days.
We would have to say that The Secret Solstice Festival was quite the success all around. Not only was it another great show from REAL EYES, it was also the freshman year for the festival and might we say, job WELL done. The music world no doubt will see many more years to come for this awesome Icelandic treat.
The event production was flawless and the festival revelers from all corners of the globe were eager for the list of topnotch international talent. REAL EYES joined the festival roster along side of Massive Attack, Disclosure, Banks, Gluteus Maximus, Jamie Jones and Damian Lazarus with Rebelrave to name only a few of the 150 acts.
REAL EYES played the second largest of five sound stages to an excited and energetic audience. They brought the crowd on an hour and forty minute journey, through mostly new, unreleased improvised material and some favorite live remixed tracks. Re-IN-Joy…
