Infection control during the festival

This year’s festival is planned with a strong focus on infection control. This will be felt both before, during, and after the events. Read more about the various measures below.

In addition to written information, there will be more volunteers than usual present to help the audience through the event. Infection control is also informed from the stage during each event.

We all want a safe and enjoyable festival experience.


The events

To limit close contact, all events are carried out without a break. This also means that all events are somewhat shorter than usual. Read more about the program here.

Upon admission, the festival’s volunteers guide everyone to their seats. Although there are numbered seats in most concert venues, adjustments may be made to meet current distance requirements. Cohorts have the opportunity to sit together. The audience also has a responsibility to maintain distance during the event. The audience is encouraged not to leave the seats during the event.

When leaving the event, the audience closest to the exits begins to exit. This is informed from the stage at the various events.

Hand sanitizer will be available at all events.


For the sake of infection control, it is recommended that everyone buys tickets before arriving at the events. This limits the risk of queuing and unnecessary close contact. Tickets can be purchased electronically on the festival’s website or at Lofoten Kulturhus.

When buying tickets, families / cohorts can buy group tickets. These must then be reserved at the same time and charged with the same payment card.

Restrictions mean that only a limited number of tickets are issued for all concerts. It will therefore be sold out, even in the largest churches. To compensate for this, some concerts will be repeated – also at different destinations. Read more about the program here.

Name lists

Upon arrival at the festival’s events, everyone must register their name and telephone number. The information will only be used in case of infection tracking. Name lists are shredded after 10 days.

This also applies to families / cohorts with several people.


Both seats and benches are cleaned before and after the festival’s events. Other contact surfaces are also cleaned regularly.

Several of the churches used during the festival have limited toilet capacity. To avoid queues and unnecessary close contact, everyone is asked to pay attention to this.
