Summer happens quick in Northern Europe, and the festies that revel up here take full advantage of the warm weather to celebrate a stacked roster of festivals across Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland. Even with the short nights, camping here can be cool and comfortable when compared to the rest of the world, and and the musical genres across the region are plentiful enough for any festie to feel at home.
Secret Solstice Festival 2020
Praise Odin! Celebrate the longest day of the year in a place where the sun never sets. Taking place outside the capital of Reyjavik, Secret Solstice takes full advantage of the stunning Icelandic settings with once-in-a-lifetime shows inside a glacier or a heated lagoon. The festival proper features huge headliners and should be on every festie’s bucket list.
