Full Programme out now!

Borealis returns to Bergen, Norway 13–17 March with five full days of concerts and sound installations, family events and conversations, exploring exciting new musical expressions from across Norway, Sápmi and the world! For the 21st edition of Borealis, the festival dedicates half of its programming to exploring the interaction of Sámi history, identity and erasure with experimental sound, music and listening practices. Led by Sámi artist and musician and Borealis Artist in Residence 2022–2024 Elina Waage Mikalsen, our 2024 festival will present a diverse range of Sámi artists who work experimentally with sound and music.
