Think VIP festival packages can't get any more outrageous? Think again.

Iceland’s Secret Solstice Festival is luring one-percenters seeking the ultimate festival experience with the most expensive ticket package on earth: $1 million.

This year's festival, which bills Radiohead, St. Germain, Of Monsters and Men, and Deftones among its headliners, is offering a suite of outrageous amenities for the person willing to shell out those big bucks: A round-trip flight in a private business jet from anywhere on the planet for six, 24/7 access to two private luxury cars (including drivers and security) for a week in Iceland, two private concerts by prominent Icelandic musicians, helicopter transfers, complete access to the main Secret Solstice 2016 event, a private aerial tour of Iceland, access to the world’s first (and already sold-out) concert inside the dormant magma chamber of a volcano, access to the world’s only party inside a glacier, and private access to Iceland’s world-famous Blue Lagoon.

The two private concerts will include one intimate show at the Reykjavík residence in which the guests will be staying, and one performance in the middle of an Icelandic lava field—with helicopter rides to and from the show, naturally.

Read a complete list of perks that come with the world's most expensive ticket below. Of course, standard festival passes are available, starting at $177. Learn more at secretsolstice.is.
