Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Contents -

What is it? A lit­eral blinder, at Ice­land’s sum­mer sol­stice, when the sun doesn’t set for days. Who’s the crowd? Glas­ton­bury go­ers look­ing to in­crease their vi­ta­min D in­take.

What you will see: By day three, it will feel like The Walk­ing

Dead, where the zom­bies all wear Day-Glo sun­glasses. What you won’t see: First-time fes­ti­val go­ers. This is not for the faint-hearted.

High points: Par­ty­ing on a glacier to the likes of J Hus, Stor­mzy and… Bon­nie Tyler.

Dis­as­ter po­ten­tial: That weird guy you pulled on day one? Hard to hide from him when it doesn’t get dark.

Com­fort fac­tor: Camp on site or walk into Reyk­javik. What the or­gan­is­ers might say: “Come for the Vik­ings… and try not to vomit.” 21-24 Jun; Se­cret­sol­stice.is
