Secret Solstice Festival 2016 Coincides With 72 Hours of Sunlight



The Icelandic festival returns this summer for its third consecutive year and it’s sure to deliver extra surprises.


The event will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland on the weekend of the summer solstice – June 17-19, 2016. Because of the unique location and timing of the festival, the whole weekend will have continuous sunlight. For 24-hours each day, attendees will have the chance to bask in the sun. The 2016 edition of Solstice even includes Midnight Cruises during the special “midnight sun,” which is only found in Iceland at that time.


To separate Secret Solstice even further from the mainstream type A festival, there will also be geothermal pool parties and a two-night limited availability glacier party. Patrons will have the chance to travel inside a prehistoric glacier to experience a natural venue like no other. Saturday night will host an international electronic act and Sunday holds an acoustic set from an Icelandic artist.



Phase 1 lineup announcements include the famous Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men, the indie band who brought you “Little Talks,” house hall of famer Kerri Chandler, and the reggae inspired band Amabadama. More artists will be announced soon.


Secret Solstice offers a unique take on the traditional music festival using its one of a kind setting to give you an experience you can’t replicate anywhere else in the world.


Tickets are available here along with a camping option as well. Travel packages are also available on the Secret Solstice site here.
