Secret Solstice and the $1 Million Festival Ticket

Small price to pay for the real festival experience

We’ve all been there. Checking in at a festival, seeing a bunch of different color wristbands, wondering where we stand. The GAs scowl at the VIPs. The VIPs look to their right and there’s a better view of the stage for the Super VIPs. Those people look further and envy the open bar for the Ultra VIPs. And those people are wondering how to get an Artist pass. Now Iceland’s Secret Solstice Festival is taking that concept to its logical extreme: the million dollar ticket. Literally. One single $1 million ticket for those who are just sick and tired of the dreary festival pass experience.

Let’s start over. What even is the Solstice Festival? Due to the Reykjavik’s position relative to the Arctic Circle, it receives long daylight hours in the summer, including 96 hours of continuous daylight every June (after some basic research the sun appears to set for 3 hours each night, but we won’t spoil the fun). The Secret Solstice festival takes advantage of that, offering a a 4-day celebration with some major musical talent. This year that includes Slayer, Gucci Mane, Stormzy, George Clinton & Parliament Fukadelic, and A-Trak. There’s also lava tunnels, “glacier raves,” boat parties, waterfalls, the Blue Lagoon, and other scenic delights.

So getting back to the point: what do you need a $1 million ticket for? A roundtrip private chartered jet for 6 people. A party and private concert with one of the headliners. A Villa party with a private chef. Private helicopter tours (in fact, ‘private’ is sort of a given from this point forward). A each party with some of the lineup acts. Luxury hotel accommodations, spa treatments, horseback riding, snowmobiles, candle-lit dinners in a cave, and just about anything else you can think of.
