Anderson Pack, Big Sean and Rick Ross were so great last night, as I listened to their music I fell straight in my element and completely forgot how tired I was. Unfortunatly our camera got a little bit wet on saturday so the pictures from the last day are a little bit dark but here you go.
We got to Secret Solstice just in time to hear Rottweiler scream “if you have chlamydia raise your hands ?!?” over the crowd as they started playing the next song “negla”. The crowd was super energetic and Rottweiler managed to keep the dynamic atmosphere to the max. I was eager to see Prodigy and oh boy they didn’t disappoint, I was actually quite surprised to find out that I recognized a lot more songs than I thought a would. The rain was pouring down but people didnt seem to mind and let the music take over , creating mosh pits everywhere in front of the stage. As usual we took some shots of all the happy people and the great atmosphere at Solstice.
Photos by : Mathilde Schmidt & Soren Stubkjær The forecast said that it would rain all day yesterday but at the middle of The Roots Manuva set, the sun broke out and some of my friends who know how quickly the weather can change here in Iceland, were smart enough to bring their sunnies. Although the forecast for today says it is to rain all day, I will defiantly bring my sunnies just in case. Foo Fighters were as amazing as expected and at one point Dave Grohl brought out his daughter to play the drums and she defiantly wowed the crowd. Yesterday had a lot of cool looking festival guests and we managed to take some shots of some happy festival guests. Happy independence day everybody !!
"Out of a hundred songs to choose from, which one should I end with?" Chaka Khan told the audience while the beat for "Ain´t Nobody" started in the background. The crowd went wild!! Secret Solstice started with a bang last night and the festival guests didn't let the dark clouds bother them one bit. The festival fashion was clearly ´90s inspired, mixed with a dash of glitter and colors. We snapped a few pics of the festival guests and the atmosphere.
Secret Solstice festival opens today, I have been listening to Chaka Chan on repeat these past days as well as a few other artists that I am really excited to see. Here are a few of my favorite artists. And a personal favorite
Secret Solstice is upon us and some of you might be wondering what to wear. I am constantly pushing the refresh button on the weather forecast website but unfortunately the rain cloud for both Friday and Saturday are there to stay. But don´t fret – this just gives us more of a Glastonbury feeling. Thankfully there are ways to dress up , wear a colorful raincoat , boots and still look cool. The key items in my opinion are cool boots and preferably a bright yellow or army green raincoat, hat, cap or a funky bandana, a fanny pack or a cute little bag. Don´t be afraid to put on some creative festival makeup and remember a good lipstick can go a long way. I found a few items at local stores around Reykjavik to get you all prepped and ready to go!! Bandana : Geysir – 5.800 kr Canon Camera: Costco – Prices may vary Lipstick: Mac Crossover Bag: Zara – 5.995 kr Raincoat: 66 North– 19.000 kr Foo Fighters Hoodie: Spúútnik – selection and prices may vary Sunglasses: Húrra Reykjavík – 7.990 kr Chanel perfume travel kit: Hagkaup – 18.299 kr Hunters Rain-boots: Geysir – 23.800 kr And I pinterested some festival pictures for you to draw inspiration from !!! I pinterested some ideas for you to use as inspiration.
The first – semi final is upon us !! Svala is busy preparing in Kiev and our sources say that she is resting her voice in order to be completely ready for tonight’s show. Svala will the contestant number thirteen on stage and she is up against pretty strong contestants. I have full faith in our Svala and we support her all the way!! I absolutely love this acoustic version of Paper – check it: We were lucky enough to catch up with her before she left for Kiev and get her to pose for our newest cover , here are some of the questions we asked her : Ok, well we are a fashion magazine, so let’s talk style. How would you describe your personal style? I love fashion so much. I am buying stuff constantly! I am always looking for new clothes. Well, I have my own clothing line so I wear that stuff obviously. I also make a lot of my own clothes. I’m definitely not a designer snob. I mean if it’s Gucci it’s great but it’s just a random vintage piece, that’s good too. I like to mix things. High end stuff with street-wear. Non-label with name brands. Right now I’m decked out in Adidas but tomorrow I might be only wearing vintage. I guess it depends on my mood. In terms of brands, I love Balmain. I mean I can’t afford it unless it’s the H&M collection or something but I absolutely love them. I’m also a big fan of Alexander Wang and Givenchy. DKNY has a 90s sportswear look that I’m really into right now as well. But in terms of stuff I buy normally: ASOS, Dolls kill, Nastygal, Wildfox, UNIF. Oh, and I love the Yeezy stuff! Right now there’s this…
I have been absolutely obsessed by Jains album “Zanaka”. There is literally not one song that I don’t like on this album. Jain or Jeanne Galice is only twenty four years old but I feel like her sound is something that has been developed for many years ( maybe it has 🙂 ). I have her album on repeat these days !!

I cant believe that Sonar Reykjavik is over, The organizers have already put the early bird tickets on sale HERE!! Las night was beyond awesome and my main focus was to see Fat Boy Slim and De La Soul, who stopped in mid song to ask the crowd to put their phones down and enjoy the gig – how amazing!! It worked, our need to document EVERYTHING can be scary sometimes. The street style was not disappointing either. Saturday top picks: Thanks to ALL of you who were kind enough to let me document their outfits. I met so many wonderful people and I hope to see you all again next year.
Last night at Sonar Reykjavík was such a blast. I started out by seeing Berndsen then off to Sing Fang and ending dancing like a wild child at Gus Gus and Moderat. I also made some friends along the way and snapped a photo of some of the festival goers. This time around people were dressed a bit more wildly than last night so I am way excited to see what crazy outfits I get to snap tonight. Friday top picks: Tonight is the last and final night, I for one cant wait for the legendary Fat Boy Slim and the 22 year old rapper from Croydon, UK, Nadia Rose. See you there and I hope you all are happy with me snapping some photos of all you cool kids.
