According to RÚV (the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service) Slayer have filed suit against the - now former - organizers of the annual ‘Secret Solstice Festival‘, Solstice Productions. The group claim they’re owed $134,000 USD for their headlining appearance at the festival in Reykjavik, Iceland in June of 2018.

“Slayer’s lawyer, Jón Gunnar Ásbjörnsson, wrote a letter to the city on the matter, stating, among other things, that in addition to having not paid the aforementioned claim, the representatives of the festival have retained 20 percent of Slayer’s income to pay withholding tax to the tax authorities.”
