For safety reasons, the audience must be in the hall well in advance of the concert, no later than 19.50. The doors will then close.
A happy reunion
The Queen was present at two concerts during the festival in 2017, which garnered a lot of attention and recognition. It was then very natural to invite the Queen to this year’s anniversary festival. She also opens the festival is big, says general manager Knut Kirkesæther.
The festival has been confirmed by the Castle that the Queen will open the festival during the opening concert in Lofoten Kulturhus in Svolvær. She will also be present throughout the concert.
The Opening Concert is a party concert featuring the artists, all of whom are at a high international level.
We are very happy about 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 give not only us responsible, but also most people in the region a pride in the status of the festival now, concludes Knut Kirkesæther.
