Oh hi James Packer, Gina Rinehart, Rupert Murdoch. How about them quarterly write-offs? We’re assuming you’re the only ones reading this because let’s face it – who else would have a spare mill to blow on a music festival ADMIT 1?
But look, thanks for taking the time out from your busy schedules of nose-diving into your vaulted cash mountains like Scrooge McDuck to consider supporting a bit of live music for a change.
And boy do we have something that’s right up your alley!
Iceland’s Secret Solstice festival (you know, the one where Bam Margera got his face punched last year) is advertising “the world’s most expensive festival ticket”, which is hilarious because it only costs a pittance $US1 million, LOL!
Convert that to AUD and it’s well over $1.3 (but TBH that’s probably still much less than it took to ensure the casinos’ way out of Sydney’s lockout zone AMIRITE Packman? Jokes lol UP HIGH!)
Anyway, the festival takes place from June 16th to 19th in Iceland’s capital Reykjavik, and will include performances by Radiohead, Deftones and former Moloko singer Roisin Murphy alongside a bunch of local acts, including Of Monsters And Men.
But that’s just for the GA-ticketed peasants. Obvies the golden ticket gets you a whole lot more.
We’re talking helicopter rides, private performances inside motherfuckin’ glaciers and in the middle of lava fields and the freedom to request an introduction to any artist you damn well please. Yep, that includes a private pow-wow with Thom Yorke.
“With inclusions like return business jet transport from anywhere on earth, two private concerts only for the holders of this exclusive ticket, access to sold out world-first side events, private Icelandic tours and nature experiences, and so much more, this is truly the festival ticket for that person who already has everything,” the festival says (via NME).
You can check out the full list of perks below, but there’s only six tix available, so best use some of your lunch money to buy one here ASAP before some asshole who doesn’t even own their own uranium mine beats you to it.
