Eclectic music in a stunning location
Bergenfest is a multi-genre music festival in Norway. Taking place within the walls and grounds of a medieval fortress, diverse stars of alternative music play in front of a stunning natural backdrop.
Whether it's rock, indie, electronic, pop or hip-hop, the lineup is always an impressive combination of big names and homegrown Norwegian artists – with the likes of Patti Smith, Sigur Rós, Blondie, Kygo and Biffy Clyro playing in previous years.
Unique staging and breathtaking vistas couple with the music to make the whole festival really special.
Bergenhus Fortress provides a unique and incredible festival venue, with sections dating back to the 1500s and huge lawn spaces surrounding the fortress itself. The main stage takes up residence close to the walls, with satellite stages springing up in the surrounding area.
