Festivals in and around Jotunheimen National Park

Norway is in many ways a country of extremes, so it’s perhaps not a coincidence that some of the genres that have thrived here for decades are black metal and jazz (or even black jazz …). Black metal can be experienced in Norway during the Inferno festival, held every easter in Oslo. Jazz festivals can be found in places such as Molde, Kongsberg, Haugesund, Oslo, Beitostølen and Lillehammer. And speaking of extremes, the International extreme sports competition in Voss usually has a few memorable concerts every year. Jotunheimen National park has no exception, great Festivals like Vinjerock, Trollrock, The Nordic Mountain Film Festival and Jotunheimen Fjellfestival.

Food, and especially local food, is more and more important to Norwegians, and in the last few years a number of new food festivals have popped up across the country. It’s perhaps unfair to mention only one, but the Rakfisk festival in Fagernes (Rakfisk is rine-cured fish – trout, sometimes char – that has been salted and left to ferment in brine for two to three months) is an event you should not miss if you are in the area.

Norwegians are a music-loving people, and all over the country artists, promoters, venues and enthusiasts come together to provide a rich offering of concerts – from massive stadium rock shows down to tiny and intimate performances.
