Bergenfest is one of Norway's oldest and leading music festivals, consistently showcasing its diverse lineup in the beautiful city of Bergen for over 25 years.
Since its inception all those years ago, Bergenfest has gone onto welcome some of the biggest artists in the worlds of rock, pop, hip-hop and more, including Bon Iver, Patti Smith, Queens of the Stone Age and Liam Gallagher.
Situated in the heart of the city, at the North end of the UNESCO World Heritage site Bryggen, Bergenfest takes place in the picturesque and historic surroundings of Bergenhus Fortress.
