Monday the 8th of July at 08.00pm this year’s festival in Lofoten Kulturhus, Svolvær starts. In connection with our 15th anniversary, the festival is officially opened by H.M. Queen Sonja.
For security reasons, the audience must be in place in the hall well in advance of the concert, no later than 19.50. The doors will then be closed.
We had the pleasure and honor of having the Queen present at two concerts in 2017, and we saw that this gave us great attention and recognition. It was then very natural for us to invite the queen to this year’s anniversary festival.
The festival has been confirmed from the castle that the Queen opens the festival during the opening concert in Lofoten Kulturhus in Svolvær, Monday 8 July at 08.00pm. She will also be present throughout the concert. The opening concert is a firework concert that presents the artists, who are all at a high international level.
– We are very pleased with this. Having the royal house represented is a great honor for all of us who organize the festival. It will inspire the artists, and it will not only give us responsibility, but also most people in the region a pride in the status the festival now has, says general manager Knut Kirkesæther.
