Norwegians love festivals

“In Norway, there is approximately one festival per 5,000-6,000 people. The festivals are fairly evenly distributed between the country’s regions. About two-thirds of the festivals take place in cities, while the rest are in the countryside or in smaller towns,” says Anders Rykkja, research fellow and former CEO of Norway Festivals.

Being a dedicated festivalgoer himself, it makes perfect sense to Rykkja that so many people choose to go to festivals.

“Festivals provide wonderful opportunities for people to immerse themselves intensely in artistic and cultural experiences in a limited period of time. People get the chance to meet artists, watch performances, productions, and concerts they would otherwise not have experienced,” he says.

Here are his five recommendations for unusual cultural festivals.

Anders Rykkja’s recommendations

1. Førde Traditional and World Music Festival

“The festival has been voted one of the best festivals in the world within its genre by Songlines Magazine,” says Rykkje. 

This is the largest festival in Scandinavia for music and dance from all over the world. The festival was established in 1990 and takes place every year.

2. The Peer Gynt Festival, Vinstra

“A celebration of Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece, with events, concerts, lectures, and performance. An open-air production of the famous play is staged beside lake Gålåvatnet,” says Rykkje.

Every year since 1967, the Peer Gynt festival has been held in the Gudbrandsdalen valley to celebrate the local legend that inspired Henrik Ibsen’s play Peer Gynt.

3. Riddu Riđđu, Manndalen

Rykkje calls it “a unique Sami music and cultural festival.”

The mission of the Riddu Riđđu festival, which was established in 1991, is to promote and develop the Sami coastal culture.

4. Nordland Music Festival, Bodø

According to Rykkje, this festival features “quality music, magnificent scenery, and numerous outdoor stages.” 

The festival is hosted in venues throughout Bodø and invites you to sample classical music, jazz, folk music and pop, both indoors and outdoors. The festival takes place each March.

5. Mela Festival, Oslo

“A gathering place for world-class performing arts and culture, right in the heart of Oslo,” sasy Rykkje.

This festival will enliven all your senses with international rhythms, music, dance, and food. Mela was first held in 2001 and attracts around 300,000 festivalgoers every year.
