If you thought a mega music festival such as California’s Coachella provides the most luxurious packages for the rich and famous, you are yet to hear about the Secret Solstice Festival.

Held in picturesque Iceland and set over 96 hours of continuous sunlight, the boutique festival could also be home to the world’s most expensive festival ticket.

Valued at $1 million (Dh 3,673 million) and dubbed The Golden Ticket, the list of benefits offered are stupendous; they range from a private jet flying you to the event, luxury accommodation, charted helicopter tours over the stunning island country and private dining supplied by Iceland’s most prominent chefs - to private parties with the festival artists and backstage.

With such glamour and luxury at hand, it is easy to forget the eclectic music on offer. Headlining the event this year are metal giants Slayer who will be joined by rappers Stormzy and Gucci Mane, Welsh pop-star Bonnie Tyler, funk legend Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and a host of other acts ranging from hip-hop, dance to rock.

For those not up to spending the seven digits for the Golden Ticket, you can still live it up with the Package of the Gods and the Oðinn tickets, valued at $14800 (Dh 54,363) and $1,865 (Dh 6,850) - which includes helicopter tours of glaciers and volcanoes, luxury accommodation for two and host of VIP parties.
