Party Report: Secret Solstice

Iceland’s Secret Solstice is often called by numerous outlets the world’s most unique festival experience due in large part to the country’s perma sunlight over the course of the summer months. Naturally, I can’t recall if such a claim is warranted or not with so many destination style festivals around the world but, subjectively, the unique location and atmosphere of Secret Solstice does, in fact, live up its claim in my view. As you may know, Iceland sits directly underneath the Arctic Circle, which translates to periods of perma daylight or perma night. Think about it like this…at night, when ... Read more
