Bergen Academy of Art and Design Constructing Ice Music Festival 2018

For the last few years, we have teamed up with Norway's prestigious Bergen Academy of Art & Design (KHiB) to create some fantastic Ice Music Festival venues, from large ice igloos to detailed backdrops for film projections. So we are super happy that the team from KHiB will be returning in 2018 to construct our wonderful new venue in Finse, Norway. 

The team consists of University of Bergen degree students who are studying furniture design, spatial design, interior architecture and visual communication and led by Professor Petter Bergerud, an architect who's a leading master of experimental structures and geometric challenges - a perfect CV for overseeing the specialist needs of our Ice Music Festival venue.

Petter is pictured to left outside one of the entrances to an acoustic ice 'church' for 2015's Ice Music Festival. 

Finse can get very cold and potentially windy, so without the right structure(s) in place to protect the musicians and audience from the weather conditions, the magic of Ice Music can be diminished. With Petter and his team in place, we're super excited that Finse will look and feel amazing. Want proof? just check out these enormous cathedrals of ice that engulfed musicians, audio & lighting tech and the cosy audience below! (click any to enlarge).

If you haven't booked your tickets for Ice Music Festival 2018 in Finse, then pop over to our online ticket shop - if you'd like to spread the sound of Ice Music, then follow us on Twitter and see our pictures and stories on Instagram. You can also check out who's performing here. See you in Finse on Feb 2nd & 3rd 2018 ❄️ #icemusicfestival2018

Buy your Ice Music Festival 2018 tickets

Great news for Ice Music fans of the world - tickets for our mini Ice Music Festival in Finse, Norway are now up for sale over Tikkio shop.

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 Arctic 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.

The venue location will be approximately 100m from the world famous Finse 1222 Hotel which itself is situated right next to the train station platform - very important, as Finse is only accessible by train during the winter months. Be aware that there are limited numbers of tickets for each concert!

The weather in Finse can be very cold, easily reaching -20ºC. The colder temperatures are perfect for the incredibly dynamic fragility of Ice Music because the colder the air temperature, the clearer the sound of Ice, which displays a far wider dynamic range. So seek out your warmest clothing and join us on a truly exotic aural journey ❄️

Please note that accommodation in Finse is limited in winter. If you cannot book rooms at the fabulous Finse 1222 Hotel, we strongly recommend staying in Geilo, only a few train stops from Finse (with extraordinary views in daylight). Please use the very efficient NSB to see to buy your train tickets and the good people at Visit Geilo will cater for all the information about accommodation and other winter activities in both Geilo and Finse.

Great news - Ice Music Festival 2018 relocating to Finse!

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

Ice Music Festival
Ice Music Festival Geilo 2018 Cancelled

The Icemusic Festival Geilo was first arranged in 2006 on the initiative of Terje Isungset and Pål K. Medhus. The festival has been arranged at the first or second full moon every year since. Icemusic Festival Geilo is the only festival in the world where everything from arena to instruments is made of snow and ice. There have been countless hours of hard work and efforts from volunteers, performers, sponsors, collaborators and organisational management, which has contributed to the Icemusic Festival Geilo each year becoming an ever-better festival. We are very proud of the many magic moments created through the festival and are enormously grateful for the effort by so many people through all 13 festivals.

In 2018, the Icemusic Festival Geilo was due to take place in Geilo from 31st January - 4th February, however it is with great sadness that the board of the Icemusic Festival Geilo has come to the painful decision to cancel the festival in the form originally planned. The decision is based on several factors:

In recent years, one has seen increasing challenges due to weather and climate. The period before and during the festival is increasingly characterised by mild and unstable weather. This creates challenges regarding the construction of the arena, the conduct of concerts and, in particular, the safety of the audience, performers and volunteers alike.

Also in recent years, Visit Geilo AS has contributed with resources for festival management, as well as financial assistance. Unfortunately, events around Visit Geilo give no ability for financial contribution to the Icemusic Festival Geilo in 2018. In addition, there are no longer any resources in Visit Geilo to take care of festival management. It is therefore imperative to find another way to host the Icemusic Festival 2018 than planned.

We are working with an alternative plan for a significantly smaller Icemusic Festival in Finse, but we cannot give any guarantees at this time. Information about the event in Finse will be available at www.icemusicfestival.no in due course. Tickets sold to Icemusic Festival Geilo 2018 will be refunded.

With warm greetings from the board of the Icemusic Festival Geilo,

Pål K. Medhus, Sven-Erik Knoff and Line Ramsvik.

 

Icemusicfestival Geilo ble første gang arrangert i 2006 etter initiativ fra Terje Isungset og Pål K. Medhus. Festivalen har blitt arrangert ved den første eller andre fullmånen hvert år siden. Icemusicfestival Geilo er den eneste festivalen i verden hvor alt fra arena til instrumenter er laget av snø og is. Det er lagt ned utallige dugnadstimer og innsats fra frivillige, utøvere, sponsorer, samarbeidspartnere og organisasjonsledelse, som har bidratt til at Icemusicfestival Geilo hvert år har blitt en stadig bedre festival. Vi er veldig stolte over de magiske øyeblikkene som er skapt gjennom festivalen, og enormt takknemlige for den innsatsen som er lagt ned i festivalen av så mange mennesker opp gjennom alle disse 13 festivalene.

I 2018 skulle Icemusicfestival Geilo gått av stabelen på Geilo 31. januar – 4. februar, men det er med stor sorg at styret i Icemusicfestival Geilo ser seg nødt til å kansellere festivalen i den formen som opprinnelig var planlagt. Avgjørelsen baserer seg på flere forhold:

En har de senere årene sett stadig større utfordringer rundt vær og klima. Perioden før og under festivalen er stadig oftere preget av mildt og ustabilt vær. Dette skaper utfordringer rundt bygging av arena, gjennomføring av konserter og ikke minst publikums, utøveres og frivilliges sikkerhet.

Visit Geilo AS har de senere årene bistått festivalen med ressurser til festival-ledelse, i tillegg til økonomisk bistand. Dessverre gjør hendelser rundt Visit Geilo at det økonomiske bidraget til Icemusicfestival Geilo faller bort i 2018. I tillegg er det ikke lenger ressurser i Visit Geilo til å ta hånd om festival-ledelse. Det er derfor tvingende nødvendig å finne en annen måte å arrangere Icemusicfestival 2018 på, enn slik det var planlagt.

Det jobbes med en alternativ plan for en betydelig mindre Icemusicfestival på Finse, men vi kan på nåværende tidspunkt ikke gi noen garantier for at den blir gjennomført. Billetter som er solgt til Icemusicfestival Geilo 2018 refunderes.

Med varme hilsener fra styret i Icemusicfestival Geilo

VICE News Tonight HBO

Each year, our unique Ice Music Festival receives a lot of media attention - with visits from many of the world's leading TV, radio, newsprint and news organisations from the BBC, Deutsche Welle, NRK and CNN International to ABC Good Morning America, Mashable, CCTV, Russia One and The Guardian to name just a few.

2017's festival witnessed the arrival of the VICE News Tonight HBO team from New York City. They covered all aspects of the festival's stage construction, ice instrument creation and, of course, the live performances. If you've not viewed their film yet and fancy a peek into the world of Ice Music, then check out their broadcast earlier this year. 

If you like what you see and are tempted to make plans to visit the Ice Music Festival Geilo in 2018, then our website has all the information required to make your trip to Norway a fantastic experience. Plus tickets are already on sale over at our Tikkio online shop

We're as excited as ever to present the 13th annual Ice Music Festival in Geilo, Norway from Jan 31st  to 4th February 2018.

Creating a unique aural experience, the world’s only Ice Music Festival defines a truly original musical genre solidly cast from ice, snø and the astounding mountain scenery that engulfs the small and welcoming town of Geilo. Tickets are already on sale over at Tikkio and the full artist line up will be announced on October 1st 2017. Stay tuned for news* and updates via our TwitterFacebook and Instagram.

We look forward to welcoming you to the frozen north early next year ❄️

*Please note that this is the first news post for 2018's festival. After deciding to rest this service for 2017 with all announcements going out on Facebook, Twitter, we felt that having a central blog of the news items here on the Ice Music Festival site acts as easy reference - instead of scrolling through endless timelines.   

Ice Music Festival
The day a *Tubice* rolled into town

Each year we are passionate about building a signature ice instrument that really shows off the dynamics of ice music and for our 11th Ice Music Festival, here in the heart of Geilo, the choice was a 'Tubice' - yet another world first 😀

World firsts require musicians of stature and within the 'tuba-sphere' Daniel Herskedal is forming a formidable reputation and now being part of the famed UK based Editions Records, his influence continues to grow.  

The world's only Ice Music Festival straddles the fine line of art and lunacy and the idea of a 7ft high step-through ice tuba certainly pushed that boundary to the limit. Taking 2 days to build with a team of 3 ice carvers and specific tuning input from Daniel himself, the Tubice took shape and was ready to assemble on the #icemusicfestival2016 stage in time for the opening concert of Day 2.

Accompanied by leading Nordic drummers Snorre Bjerck and Helge Norbakken, along with Burkina Faso's leading balafon player - Mamadou Diabate, Daniel blew into the Tubice and the ground shook. The intensity of the huge structure's sound was amazing, coupled with a surprising range of pitch and frequency. The audience was transfixed. 

We've got a jammed packed 3 day of performances both in the main arena at 15:00 & 22:00 and then down at 'Slåttahølen' by the lake shoreline next to Geilo Culture Church at midnight. For full details, please see our 2016 Performance Times page. Expect extraordinary musical exploration, as Gawain Hewitt and his bespoke 'under the ice' recording equipment will be performing with improv kings Arve Henriksen and Terje Isungset. Yes, you read that correctly -hydrophones and speakers deep in the water flowing under a ceiling of thick lake ice. 

This is also the second year the Art & Design School in Bergen (KHiB) have collaborated with us by designing and building the second concert arena. Born from artwork from KHiB, 14 students and teachers have created a sensational ice outpost at Slåttahølen.

Don't forget that we have loads of CDs and T-Shirts covering the entire history of our pioneering ice music - since the late 1990's. Geilo's Tourist / Information Centre is open through to late tonight and you browse the goodies there. 

Ooooo, lovely sounding Ice Music to buy - yes please...

Our friends 'Los Wiaheros' published in Podróże Magazine

For 3 years, worldwide adventurers Andrzej Budnik and Alicja Rapsiewicz made a series of fantastic reports from Geilo, covering all aspects of making our annual Ice Music Festival come alive. 

Andrzej and Alicja are serious about their travel and have formed one of the largest travel blog portals in their native Poland. So serious in fact, that they hitch hiked from Poland to Geilo for their first visit and then proceeded to pitch their tent instead of booking into a hotel. Fine for most in summer weather but with nightly temperatures dropping below -20c, sleeping arrangements get cosy :-)

Martin Halla opens the 11th Annual Ice Music Festival in Geilo

Still, cold air surrounded the audience as Martin Halla (winner of the The Voice Norge) opened #icemusicfestival2016 in -22ºc - more than cold enough to tickle the vocal cords. Accompanied by Snorre Bjerck on ice percussion & Ivar Kolve on ice percussion & icephone (yes, these instruments exist 😎) the sound they produced was sublime. A super way to kick of all things ice music! 

Later this evening at 20:00 we open the first of 2 performances with 'Flower Power with African Ice & Groove' with Mamadou Diabate on Ice Balafon, Daniel Herskedal on 'Tubice', Helge Nordbakken & Snorre Bjerck working the Ice Drums and Kristin Voreland Ice Music Festival Artist for 2016.

Mamadou from Burkina Faso totally amazed the Ice Music Festival 2015 audience. Such was his popularity, we had to invite him back. For 2016, Mamadou will be interacting with two of Norway's master drummers! 

Daniel Herskedal currently holds the world record for playing dark tones on a tuba. Can he break the record with the Tubice?

This year’s Ice Music Festival artist: the wonderful Kristin Voreland from Atelier Flora. Winner of the European Champion of Floral Art and with flowers being the visual theme for 2016, Kristin's exhibition will add a beautiful finishing touch to the arena.

Then at 22:00, we finish off the evening's music with the 'Icelandic Ice Sessions' featuring Trio Mediæval on vocals, Arve Henriksen improvising with Ice Trumpet & ethereal vocal, accompanied by Terje Isungset (AKA The Ice Man) with his Ice Percussion and Johannes Lundberg playing Ice Bass (yes, these instruments exist 😎). 

Trio Mediæval's mesmerising ethereal harmonics combined with Arve's infectious improvisation wowed 2015's audience. They return with new work accompanied by Johannes on the Ice Bass and Terje's world of ice. Both performances will be in Geilo's outdoor Amphitheatre, slap bang in the middle of town.

Ice 'Henge' found near Slåttahølen

Yet another beautiful, -20ºc start to our day here in Geilo.

The main arena teams were working until late last night and continue to make great progress shaping 2016's flower & forest themes and motifs. Down by Slåttahølen, the team from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design (KHiB) are creating something quite magical, with final details to be discovered at the launch of our legendary midnight concert this Saturday night. 

A perfect -20ºc view of a mini ice 'henge' ❄️⛄️

Day 3 Preparations for #icemusicfestival2016

Bill Covitz creating one of our many ice horns ⛄️

Good morning Ice Music Fans of the world! A sublime -16ºc with still air and crystal clear skies here in Geilo. 

Day 3 of preparations are well underway, gradually transforming Geilo's central amphitheatre into a unique musical experience > #icemusicfestival2016

We have Bill Covitz's cut team carving up 1500kg ice blocks into ice instruments and our ice music stage creator Helder Neves and his team are rapidly constructing the stage wall, based on this year's visual theme of 'flowers & woodland'. And we love Helder's efficient solution to making intricate snow pillars with his ingenious 'pallet moulding process' (we think he should put a patent on it lol). 

The first round of artists & musicians arrive tomorrow. Their arrival heralds the start of the most detailed part of the Ice Music Festival process, refining the ice instruments to the musicians' needs. Each instrument is a 'one-off' and the early failure rate is often quite high, at least until the 'sweet spot' of usability, longevity and musical prowess is formed. 

Every artist and musician enters our festival with a strong spirit of discovery and a desire to perform well outside the boundaries of conventional studio and concert spaces - the 11th annual Ice Music Festival is soon upon us.
