Announcing Secret Solstice Festival 2015
Secret Solstice is returning in 2015!
Almost 8,000 people attended the very first ever Secret Solstice festival in June of this year, and thanks to all of your incredible response, we’re extremely happy to be able to confirm with everyone that we’ll definitely be back in 2015. Bring on the Midnight Sun!
But before we talk about 2015, let’s have a little recap of 2014, and what made it so special.
2014 was a huge year for all of us at Secret Solstice, as we worked long hours for months to create a world-class event that local Icelanders and foreigners would rave about for months — and years — to come. And according to all of you we delivered, judging on the thousands of emails, Facebook messages, and online comments we received.
With artists like Massive Attack, Schoolboy Q, Woodkid, Disclosure, Banks, and nearly 150 more in attendance, our first event wasn’t just all about having a spectacular background only Mother Nature could offer.
And if you weren’t there, here’s a taste of what you missed…
So what do you need to know about our next event?
Set for the solstice weekend of the 19th, 20th, and 21st of June 2015 in Reykjavík, Iceland, our next event will take advantage of the longest days of the year in the sub-arctic; again, meaning three entire days of unbroken daylight as the sun never fully sets. And no, that’s not a typo. This is the only festival on Earth where you can experience daylight for the entire weekend.
If you didn’t know, Iceland’s unique location close to the Arctic Circle means that in Summer, the days don’t just get longer. Because of some astro-witchcraft, the sun just continues throughout the sky in an unbroken arc, meaning daylight that never ends.
Our aim is to bring you a lineup that’s even bigger and better in every way than what you came to expect if you attended in 2014. We’ll be announcing the first lineup in a few weeks (and trust us, you should be getting excited for that like, now), but for now you’ll just have to let your little imagination go wild over who we could possibly be shipping to Iceland for your aural pleasure next year.
But even without a lineup, tickets are already on sale…
You can grab one of our super-limited earlybird tickets now to save yourself some cash, as well as to be one of the first people to secure a spot for Secret Solstice 2015. Be warned though, our first release sold out in 14 minutes, and the second release sold out in only a few days. You don’t have long before this third ticket release is gone, so your best bet will be to grab a ticket right now, before the price inevitably goes up after that.
You can book now through either of our ticketing partners Tix.is or Miði.is, and pricing is the same (currently 11,900 ISK) through either booking system.
Finally, make sure you’re being kept updated of all Secret Solstice updates via our major social media. We’ll be running giveaways, posting news, as well as lineup announcements there first, so make sure you don’t miss anything.
We can’t wait to see you all in 2015.
The Secret Solstice Team.
