It would appear that Iceland is still trying to claw its way back to economic stability, one extremely expensive festival ticket at a time…
Secret Solstice, the only festival in the world that doesn't experience a sunset (except T in the Park of course), announced that they were offering one super-super-VIP ticket this year, which will be going for a mere $200,000.
The press blurb from the festival reads: "Including first class return flights from anywhere on the planet for two people, a luxury five bedroom villa in Reykjavík for five nights, helicopter transfers almost everywhere including to a private experience at the famed Blue Lagoon, personal assistants, a private car service and driver on-call 24/7, private 100ft yacht party (including skeet shooting and golf), private chefs every night, lunch inside the magma chamber of a dormant volcano, aerial tours of Iceland, and more, this would have most globetrotting playboys salivating."
The festival is scheduled for June 19-21 and line-up is solid so far, with Green Velvet, Erol Alkan, Nightmares on Wax, and the Wailers, though for that money you'd expect Bob Marley on the encore.
The super-super VIP ticket is valid for two people, so it's really only $100k each. G'wan.
