Festival tickets can get quite pricey - but with a whopping $1.45 million ticket on offer, Iceland's Secret Solstice Festival has got to be the most expensive party ever.

The festival made headlines last year for selling a $290,000 ticket for two, with some sweet perks included.

This year's offer lets you bring along five friends and begins with a private jet ride, access to a six-room villa and a personal assistant and chef. Also included are tickets to the most exclusive shows - the world's first concert inside a volcano and a party in a glacier.

Have you booked one of our side events? This is from 2015's Secret Lagoon party.

The event features artists like Radiohead and the Deftones - and those who've forked out for the ultimate package will be able to brush shoulders with the stars at the artists-only bar.

Other perks include:

• 24/7 access to two luxury cars, personal drivers, and private security for the entire week in Iceland
• Private viewing areas for all major acts at Secret Solstice 2016, where possible
• The world famous Blue Lagoon reserved privately for an evening for the ticket purchasers and their invited guests, plus helicopter transfers to the Blue Lagoon from Reykjavík
• Access to the Secret Lagoon party in a 120+ year-old geothermal lagoon (Iceland's oldest), including helicopter transfers from Reykjavík.
• Private show at the guests' holiday residence in Iceland by prominent Icelandic act
• Private half-day Icelandic nature helicopter tour, to experience Iceland's incredible natural sights from the air, with champagne lunch at a geothermal hotspot.
• Personal engraved and framed memorial ticket for each guest, made from Icelandic lava rock.
• Introductions where possible to Secret Solstice 2016 artists.
• A private whale and dolphin watching tour.
• A private aeroplane day tour over Iceland's south coast, including Vatnajökull glacier and the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.
• Midnight sun glacier walk on top of a glacier in Iceland with the sun still up after midnight, including helicopter transfers from Reykjavík, and a private glacier snowmobile experience
• Private tours of any additional Icelandic holiday/tourist experiences where possible, with time permitting

The glacier party last year was so amazing. Did you get your ticket in time?
