Bergen: The Best Festival Location Ever?

Bergen: The Best Festival Location Ever?

EKKO 2014

EKKO 2014

Bergen, Norway

EKKO festival 2014 is just a few weeks away. It's got Scandinavian and European electronic music in abundance, and it's got a great venue that's both modern and intimate. But best of all, it's got Bergen.

Norway's second largest city could quite possibly be the most beautiful festival location in the world. So in celebration of all things sweeping and mountainous, Solgunn Slåtto from the EKKO team has put together a few suggestions for exploring the area.

Fancy a hike? The view down from Fløyen is unbeatable, especially at night.


Extreme sports all year round – The village of Voss is just an hour away by train. Activites include white water rafting, skydiving and skiing in winter.


Pining for the Fjords? Boat tours run all year, and the roadside fruit stalls are worth a visit too.


Bergen Aquarium – They have sharks!


Hulen, or “The Cave” – The oldest rock club in northern Europe. 

It’s such a respected venue that we had to mention it, but it doesn’t really fit the beautiful scenery theme…


… so here's another one of Bergen, looking unbelievable
