The Hove Festival

The Hove Music Festival in Southern Norway is probably the only festival in the world with its own boat camp.

Besides great music in various genres, the Hove Festival promises festival goers everything from quirky art scenes to yet-to-be-released movies and even organic food.

Where to stay

For the true festival spirit, you should stay at the festival camp - a large tent camp right in the middle of the festival site, with everything you need within a few hundred metres.

Do you prefer a good night’s sleep after a long day of music and dancing? If so, Hove Camping, a 10 minute walk away from the festival grounds, is your choice. This is a large campsite with its own beach. It is also possible to rent a cabin here.

You will also find other types of accommodation in the region. However you wish to stay, we strongly recommend that you book your accommodation as early as possible.
