5 unusual cultural festivals

An insider’s guide to five fun festivals
In Norway you have more 900 festivals to choose from, and around 300 of these are art and cultural festivals. Whether you fancy music, performing arts or traditional events, here are five Norwegian cultural festivals out of the ordinary.

“In Norway, there is about one festival per 5-6000 capita. The offer is fairly distributed between the country’s regions. About two-thirds of the festivals take place in cities, the rest in the countryside or smaller towns”, says Anders Rykkja, CEO of Norway Festivals.

In a survey from 2014 conducted by Norway Festivals, in cooperation with Norwegian Live Music Association, FolkOrg and the Norwegian jazz forum, one of the findings was that festivals in Norway in total have around 2.2 million spectators. In a country with approximately 5 million inhabitants, this is nothing short of impressive.

To Anders Rykkja, who is a dedicated “festivalgoer” himself, it makes perfect sense why 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 otherwise would not have experienced”, he says.

Read about his five recommendations on 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.”

    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 Henrik Ibsens’s masterpiece staged by Erik Ulfsby by lake Gålåvatnet.”

    Every year since 1967, the Peer Gynt festival is held every year in the Gudbrandsdalen valley to celebrate the local legend that inspired Henrik Ibsen’s dramatic poem “Peer Gynt”.

  • 3. Riddu Riđđu, Manndalen

    “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

    “Quality music, magnificent scenery, and numerous outdoor stages.”

    The festival makes use of every corner of Bodø and invites you to sample classical music, jazz, folk music and pop, indoors and outdoors. The festival takes place in March each year.

  • 5. Mela Festival, Oslo

    “A gathering place for world-class performing arts and cultural expression right in the heart of Oslo.”

    This festival will challenge your senses with international rhythms, music, dance, and food. Mela was held for the first time in 2001 and the festival attracts around 300,000 people every year.
