This weekend marks the third annual edition of Secret Solstice Festival in Iceland, which will return to the island’s cultural capital of Reykjavik. Before you head to Secret Solstice for a weekend of cutting-edge music and breathtaking natural beauty, read over the festival’s extensive lineup and schedule by going here. Stop by the “Askur” stage, which will showcase forward-thinking house acts for the entirety of the weekend, including performances from Paranoid London, Visionquest, Clovis, Youandewan, Deetron, and many more. Make sure to catch Icelandic dub techno master and трип favorite Exos on his home turf—he will close out the festival at the “Fenrir” stage on Sunday night. And for those wanting a more intimate, unique festival experience, take part in one of Secret Solstice’s several after parties, which include an “Ice Rave” that takes place inside Langjökull (Europe’s second largest glacier), and their Horizon Party that will feature sets from the likes of Artwork, Ryan Crosson, Skream, and more at a secret geothermal location near Reykjavik.

On Friday night, pansexual party producer A Club Called Rhonda returns to Los Globos in Silverlake for a night of inventive electronic music and gender-bending debauchery. The Berlin-based artist xxxy is set to headline the event, which will also feature performances from funky house duo Waze & Odyssey, Chicago’s Parris Mitchell, local talent Osamu, and residents Goddollars & Paradise.

On Saturday, The House District returns to Barcelona for its Off Sonar showcase. This year’s edition will take place at Up&Down Club and will feature live performances, body painting, Funktion-One sound, and a food area in addition to the event’s stacked lineup of international house music tastemakers. Highlights of the bill include performances from Levon Vincent, Panorama Bar regular Tama Sumo, Fred P aka Black Jazz Consortium, Rush Hour co-founder Antal, and of course the special guest and Detroit techno innovator Kevin Saunderson. You can buy tickets to the party through XLR8R by going here.
