Norway's shining star

Bergenfest is a multi-genre music festival in Bergen, Norway. One of the leading and most established in the country, the festival has grown over its 25 years.

Starting as a blues and Americana festival under the name OleBlues, Bergenfest has since broadened its focus, putting together lineups that include everything from rock to pop, hip hop, and beyond.
