The Midnight Sun Festival x Iceland

We're very sorry to announce that Secret Solstice will no longer be taking place this year and will be postponed until 2021.

We have been closely monitoring the situation for the past few weeks and unfortunately, it is now clear that the festival cannot take place this year. This decision has not been made lightly, but the health and wellbeing of our Secret Solstice community is our main priority.

We will be back next summer with more energy than ever on the 25 - 27 June 2021. We're working with our current artists who will now perform at our 2021 edition including headliners Cypress Hill, Blackbear, Lil Pump, Primal Scream, Regard, Ensími, Nýdönsk and more. Further details of artists will be released very soon.

All tickets purchased for our Secret Solstice 2020 will be valid for our new 2021 dates. If you still wish to refund your ticket, our ticketing operator will be in contact regarding the refund process very soon. Please bear with us during this busy time and only contact our ticketing operator if you haven't received any communication within 5 working days. If you wish to keep your ticket and join us in 2021, your ticket will be rolled over automatically.

We thank our community of festival goers, artists and partners for your continued support and we send our love to all.

Stay safe and see you under the midnight sun!

Secret Solstice 2016: Every Juicy Detail So Far

It’s been just over six weeks since we started shouting news of our 2016 event to the world, though a lot has happened already in that time. With news of us hosting the world’s only party inside a glacier again, putting the world’s ultimate festival pass on sale, as well as revealing our initial lineup, there’s been a lot to keep up to speed on.

So, with a very deep breath, here goes…



In case you didn’t already know, Secret Solstice 2016 will be held between the 17th-19th of June 2016, in the heart of Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavík. Not that we like to brag (actually, we do), though we’ve already been called one of the most unique events on Earth, and praised by the likes of TIME Magazine, The Guardian, BBC, and many more.



Might sound like lies, but we promise it isn’t. Due to Iceland’s close proximity to the arctic circle (and probably a little of Thor’s influence), the sun never fully sets during the solstice weekend, when Secret Solstice is held. This means you’ll be bathed in daylight for the entire duration of our 2016 event, and get a taste of the magic that Iceland’s first Viking settlers saw when they first arrived here around 1,000 years ago. Also, you get bragging rights to make your friends jealous of the unbelievable astro-witchcraft you experienced at our Icelandic summer music festival.

Although we’ve only announced a small handful of names so far for our 2016 lineup, we’re extremely excited about who we’ve already named. Having become one of the world’s biggest bands over the last few years, Iceland’s incredible Of Monsters And Men are leading the charge, with DJ legend Kerri Chandler (who played our inaugural event in 2014) satisfying the needs of those who will be dancing the night away in the midnight sun. Rounding out the bill are Deetron, Lady Leshurr, Amabadama, Högni Egilsson, and many others, though be aware more acts will be added over the coming weeks. For the full list of who we’ve announced so far, head here.



Ever dreamt about attending the world’s only party inside a glacier? Yeah, us too. Well, Secret Solstice festival is the only event in the known universe where you can make this dream a reality. In 2016, Secret Solstice presents Into The Glacier will host two parties during our festival weekend. Only 100 guests each show will be able to take in a DJ set by a world-famous DJ, or an acoustic show courtesy of a prominent Icelandic artist, on the 18th and 19th of June respectively. We don’t have to be modest when we say this is one of the most insanely incredible parties ever hosted, and is already on track to selling out over the coming weeks. Find out more, or book now before tickets are gone forever.



All foreigners coming to our little volcanic island in the middle of the Atlantic say basically the same thing: there’s no place on Earth like Iceland. Only a 30 minute drive or bus ride out of Reykjavík, you’ll be able to add some of the most spectacular natural attractions to your Secret Solstice 2016 experience. Without making this list immense, this includes literally hundreds of waterfalls, glaciers, geothermal pools, alien moss, volcanoes, and spectacular scenery that looks like it’s been pulled straight from Lord Of The Rings or Star Wars.


Have you seen our 2015 aftermovie? No big deal, but Festicket just named it in the top 7 festival aftermovies of 2015. Yeah, enough said… watch below.



Almost every festival on the planet now has a standard and VIP ticket, and Secret Solstice is no different. But what about if you want something even more special? What about if you want to party like Óðinn (Odin) himself? That’s where our Óðinn Super-VIP ticket comes into play. With everything money can buy included (and a ton of things it can’t), this is the ultimate way to experience our next event in 2016. Food, drinks, access to the private artist’s bar, special viewing privileges, personal assistants, and so much more, the tiny number of guests only who snag one of these passes will have a festival to remember for a lifetime. 50 tickets only available, find out more here.



If all of the above still hasn’t gotten you all hot and bothered (and if it hasn’t, you very likely have no soul), then we’re happy to announce our midnight sun boat parties and geothermal pool parties will be returning in 2016, with announcements coming very soon. On top of this, we’ll also be adding one or two more insanely cool side events, including a massive world-first that will be sure to get your imaginations running wild. Stay tuned for more.


For the pittance of just 15,900kr (approx £82/$126/€112), you can get your hands on one of our earlybird tickets and save yourself a bunch of the folding stuff. Keep in mind that the current price is 9,000kr (approx £44/$68/€63) cheaper than the final ticketed price. Why wait? Get on it, and book now!



If you’re coming to Iceland from abroad, and you’re not planning on strapping yourself to a dolphin, obviously you’ll have to fly here. As travel can get quite expensive closer to the event, we recommend you book now, especially if you’re coming from Europe or North America. Flights can be had right now from many airlines (including our partner WOW air) for peanuts, due to how far in advance we are. It’s smarter to book your travel as soon as you can, and your parents would be proud you’re making sound financial decisions. Show them you’re a big kid, and check out how cheap flights can be to our event now via WOW air, Kayak, Skyscanner, or other booking agent.


There’s only one thing left to do: join us at Secret Solstice 2016 and secure your tickets now. And as always, if you’re not following us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, or Snapchat (at “SecretSolstice”), then that’s probably a good idea too… you’re gonna want to get wind of the next lineup announcement when it drops soon.
