Aside from this amazing line up, it is very important to know that Secret Solstice has a lot more to offer. The festival offers camping as well as having a geothermal pool on the festival grounds. Sounds pretty amazing right? Well, that’s not all. The festival will also offer half-day tours before the festival opens to the Blue Lagoon and scenic Icelandic tours for everyone who is attending the festival. There will also be traditional Icelandic foods for people to eat.
The event’s name comes from the unique summer solstice period in June, during the longest days of the year. For most of the world this just means more sunlight in a day, though Iceland’s far-north location means the sun literally won’t set at all, with 24 hours of daylight in a day.
