Secret Solstice Offers $1 Million Festival Ticket: Does It Get You Closer to Radiohead?
Secret Solstice turned heads last year by offering the world's most expensive festival ticket package, which included a party inside an iceberg, for $200,000. Not to be outdone, the Icelandic destination event has announced the world's first-ever $1 Million Dollar Festival Ticket, which comes with a stacked package of perks but still begs the question: does it get you any closer to Radiohead?
The third annual Secret Solstice -- which boasts a stacked 2016 lineup including Goldie, Deftones, Skream, Die Antwoord, Artwork and Of Monsters And Men in addition to Radiohead among others -- recently announced Inside The Volcano, a V.I.P. concert held deep within the now-dormant magma chamber of the Thrihnukagigur volcano. Those tickets sold out fast (only 20 were available), but the Million Dollar Ticket holder will be one of the lucky few to rage to a yet-to-be-announced headliner inside the geographic landmark.
According to a press statement, coughing up that sum of cash also gets you: "a return flight in a private business jet from anywhere on the planet for you and five other guests, 24/7 access to two private luxury cars (including drivers and security) for a week in Iceland, two private concerts by prominent Icelandic musicians, helicopter transfers" and "so much more," NME reports.
Additionally, the Million Dollar Ticket holder will have "complete access to the main Secret Solstice 2016 event, a private aerial tour of Iceland" as well as "access to the world's only party inside a glacier, private access to Iceland's world-famous Blue Lagoon reserved for only your travel party, and so much more."
While the full list of the pricy ticket's perks -- which also which also includes drinking champagne and whale-watching -- invokes some serious FOMO, the regular tickets are going for about $200, which includes dancing to Radiohead and catching Goldie performing the entirety of Timeless during Iceland's summer solstice.
