Secret Solstice Announce Second Phase Lineup for 2016 Midnight Sun Festival

Experiencing 72 hours of never-ending daylight next year in the most northerly capital city on Earth just got a even better, with Iceland’s Secret Solstice festival announcing their second phase lineup for 2016.

A total of 60 names are now on the bill for Secret Solstice’s third year, with heavyweights Deftones, Jamie Jones, Skream, Apollonia, Visionquest and Goldie being added to already announced named like Of Monsters And Men, and Kerri Chandler. The final total of acts for the 2016 event is set for around 130 names according to organisers.

While Secret Solstice’s lineup is one thing, it’s the incredible concept that’s had festival guests flocking to Secret Solstice from around the world. Due to the event’s proximity to the Arctic Circle in Reykjavík, the sun never sets for the entire three days of Secret Solstice 2016, making for an extremely special and unique experience for people coming to Secret Solstice from abroad.

Just in time for the holidays, Secret Solstice has created the Package Of The Gods, which is the ultimate way to experience everything at Secret Solstice 2016. Priced at 1.5 million Icelandic krona (that’s just a little shy of $11,700 USD), the package promises to be an unforgettable experience for two people. Only three of these incredible packages are available, and are on sale now via the event’s website.

The Package of The Gods includes:

Óðinn festival tickets (Secret Solstice’s premium pass, limited to 50 people only)
All-in backstage access at Secret Solstice 2016
Helicopter transfers to Langjökull glacier and two tickets to the world’s only party inside a glacier during the event’s weekend
Access to all other Secret Solstice 2016 satellite parties
Exclusive meet-and-greet sessions with Secret Solstice 2016 artists
Private limousine including driver for the entire event weekend
More to be announced

Another potential add-on for guests is the ‘world’s only party inside a glacier’ – called Secret Solstice presents Into The Glacier – a side event held by the festival during the main event weekend. However, the festival warns that the Saturday the 18th of June DJ show is already sold out, and less than 50% of tickets remain for the Sunday the 19th of June acoustic show.
