As June comes to close, one of Iceland’s most internationally acclaimed festivals will gather its country’s hottest musical talent right in the nation’s capital. At Secret Solstice, Iceland’s leading artists across all genres will perform in the Laugardalur region of Reykjavik, with some top-tier American headliners to boot. The music might only be the second-best part, though: the festival gets its name from the three straight days of 24-hour sunlight during which it takes place. Iceland is so far north that, during the summer solstice, nighttime just doesn’t happen.
So, does partying to some of the best music from within and outside Iceland while the sun never goes down sound as exciting to you as it does to us? If it does, then we’ve got you covered: Thanks to our ongoing partnership with the events travel company Festicket, you can score your Secret Solstice tickets at reasonable prices via affordable payment plans.

Secret Solstice runs June 21-23, with “side-events” running adjacent to the main festivals.

American legends including Patti Smith, Robert Plant, and Pussy Riot will also perform.
