A brand new extreme metal festival is set to take place in Bergen, Norway from February 20th-22nd.
With a deep and rich tradition of metal, both as host of the infamous Hole In The Sky festival and the great newcomer Beyond The Gates Festival, it is also the hometown of many great and famous bands from the dearly beloved dark side of metal. The festival will be held in the darkest time of the year. Cold winds and snow will lay the perfect scene for the atmosphere we want to create.
Surrounded by the seven famous mountains, the main venue, USF Verftet, is based right at the dock by the city fjord, and second venue, Garage, is in the heart of town. Bergen is the second biggest city in Norway and counts 250,000 habitants. With a rich cultural tradition alongside the beautiful nature, Blastfest will also have a focus towards the town of Bergen and its history. The promoters want you to see what the town really is. In cooperation with the Viking community and cultural institutions of Bergen they want to bring you a unique experience combining your passion for metal music with nature, history and of course, the Vikings. This may be an indoor festival, but that does not mean they cannot use the whole city as our festival ground.
