Beyond The Gates


Celebrating the best in extreme metal, one of Norway’s finest music festivals once again takes place in the heart of Bergen, from August 2 – 5. This year, the event features performances from Norwegian black metal legends such as Gorgoroth, Dimmu Borgir, and progressive metal band Enslaved dive back into their history while performing a classic album from their discography. The line-up also features internationally renowed artist such as Alcest, Pertubator, Primordial, Deicide and many more.

Beyond the Gates Experience

As most of visitors know, nature and local culture has always been a poignant source of inspiration for the bands emerging from the Bergen scene. Again Beyond the Gates will give all the traveling fans the opportunity to get an unique insight into all aspects of the Norwegian Metal scene and the local culture in general. A series of events is organized before and during the festival, so fans can discover what inspired – and still does - the Norwegian metal scene.

Exploring several black metal landmarks, music fans are taken on a trip to the outskirts of Bergen, showing them a series of key locations in the Norwegian black metal lore. The trip includes a stop at the Lysekloster ruins, where a series of legendary photo and video shoots have taken place. Or, join Legendary producer Pytten on his guided tour in Grieghallen, where some of the most renowned black metal classics from the 90s came together.

And what else? Join the guided tours in old historical parts of Bergen town or visit the art gallery to a certain well known singer at Bryggen in Bergen that will hold an exhibition this year you won't miss! There will also be a guided tour to the famous Fantoft Stave Church. There will be listening parties, panels, in-depth live interviews and lots of events and activities that hopefully will give you a Beyond the Gates Experience that will last for a lifetime.
