WORLD EVENTS: Secret Solstice, Iceland, Announces Dates and First Lineup for 2016


From June 17 – 19, 2016, the inimitable Secret Solstice Festival makes a return to Iceland’s metropolitan capital, Reykjavík, for its third annual edition. For three days, and 72 hours of consecutive daylight, some of music’s finest talents will take over the world’s most northerly capital city, for what critics have dubbed “the most unique festival on Earth”.

Using Iceland’s incredible landscapes, volcanic springs and jaw-dropping glaciers as fitting backdrops to some of the world’s best music from Iceland and abroad, the breathtaking natural scenery of this Scandinavian island is an obvious sell for any adventurous festival goer seeking a party destination like no other. For a glimpse of what’s in store next June, check out Secret Solstice Festival’s Official 2015 Aftermovie below.

If the previous year’s lineups were anything to go by, be sure to keep an eye out for Phase Two, as Secret Solstice has booked around 130 acts for this year’s rendition.

In addition to the main event, Secret Solstice Festival will once again be throwing some of the most innovative and forward thinking parties imaginable, including the return of the year’s standout party. Dubbed “the world’s first party inside a glacier” Secret Solstice prepares to take over Langjökull (Europe’s second largest glacier) once again in 2016, for a series of super exclusive ‘once in a lifetime’ shows, giving festival goers the chance to party inside a mile-long tunnel carved from ice thousands of years old!


Other parties include the likes of “Midnight Sun” where guests will be able to head out into the Atlantic Ocean aboard a boat to continue partying well after midnight, enjoying eclectic DJ sets in a volcano-powered geothermal pool. Stay tuned for more events like these, due to be announced in the coming months.
