Few Norwegian music festivals can equal the international status that the Inferno Festival holds. Now in its 14th consecutive year and voted one of the 10 best in the world by the readers of Terrorizer magazine, the festival continues to grow and is now the Norwegian metal community’s most important gathering.
For four days during Easter, people are flying in from England, Sweden, Germany, Italy, the USA and even India to experience extreme metal in Norway’s capital. Not that strange, since Norwegian black metal is known all over the world and is Norway’s largest musical export.
The Inferno Festival has also been the subject of international media attention. In 2013 Inferno drew hordes of foreign journalists representing niche publications such as Metal Hammer and Terrorizer, but also larger TV networks and radio stations chose to focus on the festival.
Inferno Metal Festival 2014 is the 14th edition and will be held from 16 to 19 April. During these four days around 50 bands will perform. There will also be conferences, film screenings, tattoo artists and the Inferno Festival Hotel with pre- and afterparties, stands and even a quiz. So far, the Norwegian giants Dimmu Borgir are announced, along with Sigh, Impiety, Tulus and Black Witchery.
The festival was started in 2001 by Borknagar guitarist Jens Ryland who wanted to gather the Norwegian metal community for a celebration of extreme music. On the poster for the first ever Inferno were black metal bands such as Cadaver Inc., Borknagar and Enslaved. With Dimmu Borgir as the headlining act the following year, Inferno's ongoing success was assured.
