The Bergen International Festival presents art in all its guises: music, theatre, dance, opera and visual art. The Bergen International Festival (Festspillene i Bergen) was established in 1953 and is the largest of its kind in the Nordic countries.
In 2015 the festival takes place from 27 May to 10 June. The festival is under the Patronage of His Majesty King Harald V.
We want to invite, inspire and challenge a large local and visiting audience. During the 15 days of the festival we declare a state of emergency in the city. With our partners in and outside Bergen, we offer music, theatre, dance – and much more – that reflect our lives and dreams and has unexpected effects on the way we perceive the world.
