Begenfest, a modern Norwegian music festival of both national and international interest

Bergen is the second-largest city in Norway, also known as “the gateway to the fjords”, and a host to a great music festival that annually takes place in mid-June.

Launched in 1993 and each year, Bergenfest has acts of best performers in several genres – from American blues to electro, hip-hop, R&B, folk and more.

The festival was voted twice for the year’s festival by the Norwegian Rock Festival Council and twice got the prize of honour from the Tourist Board of the city of Bergen to contribute to an excellent presentation of Bergen in Europe and the world.

The festival’s venue is a breathtaking and scenic area of Bergenhus Fort, and the main arena comes with the capacity to receive almost 7000 people.

Each year, Bergenfest has 35 – 40 thousand people visiting, and it’s one of the best Scandinavian open-air festivals.

The line-up of performers is always impressive.

Since 1993, this festival hosted Roger Waters, Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Iggy & The Stooges, Joan Baez, The Stranglers, Pet Shop Boys, Joe Cocker, Asian Dub Foundation, Kings of Convenience, Gotan Project.
