  • A new festival is launching in Finland in June 2019. Solstice will take over the Rukatunturi ski resort next summer, running throughout the summer solstice from Thursday, June 20th through Sunday, the 22nd, when the sun will not set. It's being organised by the crews behind the new Helsinki club Post Bar and Retriitti, the annual castle rave. The lineup will features a mix of live acts and DJ sets across the four days. D. Tiffany and recent RA podcasters Buttechno and Mama Snake are booked alongside local artists Kristiina Männikkö, Sansibar, Linda Lazarov and J.Lindroos. Find the full lineup here, with more names TBA. In addition to the musical fare, there will also be an arts programme and a range of outdoor activities "from hiking to rafting to bear watching." Further details will be shared in the new year. Listen to Mama Snake on the latest RA podcast.
