Due to COVID-19, all festival information may not be up to date. However, we are maintaining a comprehensive list of festival cancellations here.
Should the apocalypse occur, head to Norway. Yes, Norway. The Svalbard Seed Vault stores the world’s species of plants to ensure we can always produce food and extinct plants should something go down. While you’re living out the final days of the earth, you can still enjoy the Norwegian festival scene. Because of its proximity to the Arctic Circle, most festivals happen in the warmer months of summer. Music and dance are the bigger festivals here. Bergenfest, Slottsfjell, Oya Festival and Pstereo Festival are all happenings where locals gather to cherish the blessing of the warmer and longer days.
