Celebrating their fifth anniversary, the most unique festival on the planet will return in 2018 with two once in a lifetime side events
Secret Solstice, for the past few years has been a staple-mark event in the Icelandic summer and has welcomed some of the worlds most diverse and exciting acts to it’s beautiful capital city, Reykjavik. Heavily touted as a bucket-list music festival and described by Billboard as one of the standout international events on the summer calendar, it’s incredibly easy to see why the popularity of Secret Solstice has sky-rocketed in recent times. There are a number of reasons that Iceland is a popular destination for tourists, whether it be the country’s mystical landscape of glaciers, volcanic deserts or plain and simply the unique conditions that result in the festival being held during 96 hours of straight sunlight – it truly is an experience like no other.
Having been recently nominated by The European Festival Awards, the carbon-neutral festival attracts visitors from across the world who are keen to dance in the rays of the never setting midnight sun to a world-class musical lineup whilst experiencing many of the country’s extraordinary environmental attractions. Past editions of Secret Solstice have featured the likes of Die Antwoord, Dubfire, Kerri Chandler, Jamie Jones, Radiohead, Nina Kraviz, The Black Madonna, The Prodigy and many more top international and local Icelandic acts. A combination of international artists along side local musical talent supported by the side events that showcase the incredible Icelandic landscape, Secret Solstice have created a truly unconquerable festival experience. Phase one announcement is on its’ way and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in 2018!
Into The Glacier & The Lava Tunnel
Making the most of the country’s stunning natural settings and spaces, the Secret Solstice side events will cater to both music and nature lovers, offering once in a lifetime experiences. Whilst stepping inside Europe’s second largest glacier Langjökull or journeying deep into a 5,000 year old Lava Tunnel, those lucky enough to snap up one of the highly prized tickets will be treated to intimate and exclusive performances from Icelandic and international artists. Equally as breathtaking, the journey into the alluring lava caves at Raufarhólshellir is a chance to witness what happens underground during a volcanic eruption, resulting in natural ice sculptures and lava tubes that form natural subterranean arteries. Extremely limited tickets will be available for Into The Glacier on Saturday June 23 and The Lava Tunnel taking place on Saturday June 23 and Sunday June 24, these events are sure to sell out fast.
