Iceland’s Secret Solstice- June 16-18, 2017
Ever since its first year in 2014 Iceland’s Secret Solstice has caught the attention of music lovers around the globe, and has even been dubbed the most unique festival on the planet. Due to Iceland’s close proximity to the Arctic, the sun never sets during the summer solstice weekend when the festival is held, meaning guests experience never-ending daylight for the entirety of the event. The festival goes beyond the limits of typical music festivals with extreme side events, including the world’s only party inside a glacier and the Midnight Sun Boat Party. However, the Icelandic music festival will be adding a brand new music-driven nature adventure to this year’s calendar.
Secret Solstice presents The Lava Tunnel
The Lava Tunnel will be two exclusive events held underground within natural lava tubes that form natural subterranean arteries. These amazing snaking chambers will become host to two acoustic performances by a prominent Icelandic artist, that’ll be witnessed on June 17th and 18th by a small handful of guests.
Iceland’s Raufarholshellir lava tunnels was formed over 5,000 years ago during a volcanic eruption, and has left a mark on the landscape that’s lasted throughout the centuries. This one-of-a kind experience is sure to leave a mark for all who attend! Only 50 lucky people will be able to secure tickets to each show. You can purchase your ticket Here.
2017 lineup features many big names, including Foo Fighters, The Prodigy, Rick Ross, Big Sean, Chaka Khan, Seth Troxler, Kerri Chandler, Richard Ashcroft, and many more to be announced!
Secret Solstice is proud to be one of the world’s only major music festivals to be certified CarbonNeutral®. This festival has made its achievement in part by sourcing almost all of their power needs from 100% renewable geothermal energy, using hybrid vehicles provided by Toyota Iceland and offsetting the residual emissions through the purchase of high quality, verified carbon credits.
Secret Solstice festival director Fred Olafsson further elaborated more on the event’s green initiatives, “we try to lessen the impact of Secret Solstice in all areas, whether it’s partnering up with other carbon neutral brands like Icelandic Glacial water, or working with Toyota Iceland who provide us with hybrid vehicles.”
