Secret Solstice is a multi-genre music festival just outside of Reykjavík. The premier festival in Iceland, Secret Solstice annually presents lineups of the biggest acts in the world.
Taking place in the summer, when the sun never sets in Iceland, the festival features the elusive midnight sun, making it a totally unique experience.
But organisers aren't satisfied with just offering a massive lineup of top tier talent and one rare natural phenomenon, so each year they set up a number of special side performances inside glaciers, volcanoes and on the ocean.

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 2018, a gig inside a volcano! Where else could you experience that!?
