Secret Solstice is Iceland's premier music festival, each year welcoming an eclectic lineup to the naturally breathtaking country for main stage sets, glacier raves, midnight sun boat parties and secret lagoon blowouts.
Taking place during the surreal summer solstice (meaning the sun never sets), the festival has firmly established itself on the bucket list for every true festival-geek wanting to be a part of this truly unique experience.
2016's edition saw the one and only Radiohead top a bill that spanned from indie and folk to hip-hop and urban, via house and techno.
The festival's main site lies within the country's capital, Reykjavík, and more specifically, Laugardalur, home to a swimming pool, a camping ground, a botanical garden, a theme park and a zoo.
It is easiest to reach Secret Solstice by plane, flying into Keflavík International Airport which is around 50km from Reykjavík. From there, you can either reach the capital by bus, taxi or renting a car. Flybus offers regular services to the BSI bus terminal just south of the city centre, which takes 45 minutes and costs around £10 one way or £18 return. A taxi from the airport will cost you around £90-£100.
The main festival is only a small part of the Secret Solstice experience, with a whole host of offsite parties giving festival-goers the chance to do something truly unique. Such events include parties and gigs inside a glacier, a secret lagoon, aboard a midnight sun boat trip, and in 2016, a gig inside a volcano! Where else could you experience that!?
