UNCHARTED FESTIVALS Pining for Glastonbury? Pah! Try an alternative gathering
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
