Iceland’s Secret Solstice, which is due to take place in the world’s most northerly capital city, Reykjavik, will be powered 100 per cent by geothermal energy.
The event is returning for its fifth edition during 96 hours of continuous sunlight from June 21-24, and will join forces with Be-At.TV as an official live streaming partner – it will also debut the Red Bull Silent Disco and a special FIFA World Cup live viewing party as Iceland takes on Nigeria.
Tapping into Iceland’s national grid, Secret Solstice is one of the first festivals to run entirely on geothermal energy sources without relying on generators powered by fossil fuels. Continuing with its commitment to reduce its environmental impact, Secret Solstice will also enforce a total plastic straw ban on site.
Secret Solstice will also be the first festival in Iceland to go cashless, with the introduction of RFID wristbands and will see the return of the $1 million ticket, which offers six festival goers private jet travel from anywhere in the world, exclusive parties and luxury accommodation.
