Some super fine news today, as we have been able to arrange for a new location to host Ice Music Festival in 2018 - high up in the mountain plateau of Finse!
We were so sad to inform the need to cancel the Ice Music Festival (please see our statement in English & Norwegian here) so we have tried our very hardest over the last 2 weeks to seek out a new location with 'guaranteed' cold weather and that hard work as paid off, we are happy to announce a smaller, more intimate festival of Ice Music surrounded by the wonderfully icy and snowy mountains of Finse on February 2nd & 3rd 2018.
Only accessible by train, Finse's location is truly exotic - boasting the amazing Hardangerjøkulen and Blåisen icefall, extraordinary panoramas which Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton all used to train on for their Artic and Antarctic adventures. Star Wars fans also pay homage to the plateau, as the Empire Strikes Back's ice planet Hoth scenes was filmed at Finse.
Under extremely dark skies, you will experience Ice Music in its purest form.
More details about prices and the revised music programme will be released in the next few days.
We're so excited #icemusicfestival2018
