There’s still time to get your tickets and bunk off work for what promises to be a brilliant Bergenfest 2015.
Western Norway’s largest music festival has really pulled out the stops this year with an eclectic line-up of big-hitters alongside some of Norway’s most promising young bands.
Taking place in the beautiful surroundings at Bergenhus Castle on the tip of Bryggen, the four day sonic feast will kick off with a performance by rock’s poet laureate Patti Smith on Thursday evening.
Alt-J, Aurora, Bastille, Calexico, Death Cab For Cutie, First Aid Kit, Grace Jones, Interpol, John Grant, Matthew E. White and Tori Amos lead the foreign invasion while Röyksopp and Aurora head up a healthy Norwegian contingent.
The festival takes place from Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th June and you’d be a fool to miss it. Get your tickets here.
