Introducing Iceland’s coolest festival.
As well as all the amazing international bands and local talent performing at Secret Solstice this year, you can also experience so much more! From exclusive parties in a glacier and lava tunnel, to relaxing in a Geothermal Spa as well an enjoying all the amazing bars and restaurants of Reykjavik. And all this under 96 hours of sunlight during the surreal summer solstice!
Here’s seven things that make Secret Solstcie a unique festival experience…
Secret Solstice is the only large-scale festival taking place during a period of non-stop, 96-hours (that’s four whole days) of sunlight!
2. Party inside a glacier!
Secret Solstice host exclusive music-driven side parties, designed to highlight the natural beauty of Iceland against a selection of specially curated artist performances of the festival. These sell out experiences include Into The Glacier – a rave in the Langjökull, Europe’s second largest glacier – and a party at The Lava Tunnel – a magical acoustic music experience in a 5200 year old magma tube. Total once in a lifetime experiences.
Secret Solstice is powered by the fire of volcanos via Iceland’s geothermal energy network so festival goers can party with their minds at ease when it comes to the impact that this festival has on the environment.
Celebrating the traditions of the summer solstice, from Valhalla to Fenrir, every stage name is inspired by Norse Mythology. Just the knowledge you need to ace that next pub quiz instead of just going with “Thor” as an answer…
Secret Solstice is the first and only festival to have a million dollar ticket, which includes a concert party with a Secret Solstice artist, a welcome party at a villa with unlimited champagne and Icelandic delicacies, an exploration adventure of the Langjökull glacier by snowmobile, access to luxury spa and treatments throughout the duration of your stay, a private helicopter tour over the glaciers and volcanoes of South Iceland and more. BRB, grabbing a lottery ticket now.
There are culinary delights on every corner of Reykjavik, whether it’s vegan ice creams and sourdough pizzas at up and coming “fish-packing district”, Grandi, new speciality cuisines on Hverfisgata or discovering traditional Icelandic delicacies. The night life is full of energy and with the never-ending sunlight you can vibe to hip hop at Prikid, party to house and techno at Paloma, check out performances at Hurra and end the night (or morning) with a hot dog from the famous stand, Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur. Sounds like an ideal night out to us.
When the parties over what better way to relax than in the hot springs or a Geothermal pool? Or how about taking a journey outside Reykjavik and being at one with nature at Thorsmórk or Landmannalaugar? Visit a natural spa and rejuvenate after a long weekend or experience the power of Skógarfoss, one of Iceland’s many waterfalls. If you are still up for another Icelandic adventure, hike mount Esja or snowmobile on Langjökull Glacier.
