The Secret Solstice Festival 2018 is going to tick a few things off your bucket list.
Held during 96 hours of straight sunlight in Reykjavik, Iceland’s Secret Solstice Festival announces the return of their signature side events, Into The Glacier and The Lava Tunnel for their fifth edition. Scheduled to take place from June 21st to 24th 2018, will combine a world-class music festival with the many one-of-a-kind attractions that the land of fire and ice has to offer. After all, it has earned the title of the world’s “most unique festival”, thanks to their spectacular event experiences you can’t find anywhere else.
Recently nominated by The European Festival Awards, this carbon-neutral festival attracts visitors from across the globe who are keen to party hard in the land of the never-setting midnight sun to a world-class and diverse musical line-up whilst experiencing many of the country’s extraordinary environmental attractions. Just outside Reykjavik, visitors can explore supernatural landscapes boasting of beautiful waterfalls, icy glaciers, black sand beaches, and vast volcanic fields as well as world-famous sites like the Blue Lagoon and Game of Thrones filming locations.
Making the most of the country’s stunning natural settings and spaces, the Secret Solstice side events cater to music and nature lovers, offering once-in-a-lifetime, jaw-dropping experiences. Whilst stepping inside Europe’s second largest glacier ‘Langjökull’ or journeying deep into a 5,200-year-old Lava Tunnel, attendees will be treated to intimate and exclusive performances from Icelandic and international artists.
For thousands of years, what lay beneath the surface of the Langjökull glacier was considered a mystery and it was only recently that humans were able to see the spectacular blue ice buried 130 feet beneath the surface. Equally as breathtaking is the journey into the magnificent lava caves at Raufarhólshellir. You will have the chance to witness what happens underground during a volcanic eruption, which results in natural ice sculptures and stalactites in connecting lava tubes that form natural subterranean arteries. With extremely limited tickets available 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.
Artists at past editions of Secret Solstice have included the likes of Anderson .Paak, Big Sean, Chaka Khan, Die Antwoord, Dubfire, Foo Fighters, Kerri Chandler, Jamie Jones, Of Monsters and Men, Radiohead, Rick Ross, The Black Madonna, The Prodigy, Wu-Tang Clan, and many more top international and local Icelandic acts.
