Secret Solstice received massive global attention last year for hosting the world’s first and only party inside a glacier, within 10,000 year-old ice of Langjökull, the second-largest glacier in Europe. Although their 2016 glacier parties sold out quickly, they’ve just added an additional date on June 17th with 100 tickets available, as well as having several other incredibly unique side events on offer.


Package deals to Iceland for Secret Solstice start at only 77,900kr (approx. £429/$599/€551) including flights and a festival pass from Gaman Travel, with almost twenty cities in the United States, Canada, and Europe covered. Alternatively, Festicket have accommodation and ticket packages starting at 36,000kr (approx. £200/$279/€257), with options including camping, hostels, and a range of hotels.


With travel to Iceland having never been easier due to the increase of airlines flying to the tiny north Atlantic nation, Secret Solstice still advises to book as early as possible. Due to the event being held over Iceland’s biggest weekend for tourism over the year, travel and accommodation can become scarce and expensive closer to the event.


Passes for Secret Solstice 2016 are on sale now from 24,900kr (approx. £133/$191/€175) for a full festival pass, or from 29,900kr (approx. £166/$230/€211) for a festival pass and camping. Festival information and ticketing can be found via the Secret Solstice 2016 festival site

Secret Solstice is an Icelandic music festival that is being held for the third time on June 16-19, 2016 in the city of Reykjavík. It showcases both established artists as well as exciting up-and-coming talent over the course of three days in the 24 hour midnight sun during the summer solstice. It‘s themed after the Norse religion and mythology of old. It‘s set to deliver a unique party atmosphere filled with great entertainment.
