An early Christmas present was delivered this morning for Icelandic metal fans—lauded alt-metal band Deftones is one of 37 acts confirmed for the 2016 Secret Solstice music festival. Deftones has been active since 1988, releasing seven albums and earning numerous awards.

British electronic artist Goldie is also appearing, and albumm.is reports that he’ll be performing his 1995 debut masterpiece ‘Timeless’ in its entirety at the festival.

Other notable foreign acts include Skream, Richy Ahmed, and Visionquest.

Festival representative Ósk Gunnarsdóttir tells Vísir that they’re aiming to make the festival even bigger than last year, by offering a diverse lineup with something for everyone.

The big Icelandic bands confirmed include Of Monsters And Men, Úlfur Úlfur, Herra Hnetusmjör, Högni Egilsson, and Lily the Kid.

Their 2015 iteration was much more focused on hip-hop, and their 2014 run on dance music.

Secret Solstice 2016 is held June 17-19, around the ‘midnight sun’ moment of the summer solstice.
