Get ready for Borealis 2024

Borealis 2024 will celebrate innovative experimental sound and music making from across Norway and Sápmi. Over 5 days we bring together adventurous listeners in concert halls, on mountain tops, and in swimming pools to listen together here in Bergen. 2024’s festival is for the first time programmed in collaboration, this year with Sámi artist Elina Waage Mikalsen, bringing a whole programme of experimental Sámi artists together in a way that has never been done in Bergen before

Follow Elina’s project on Instagram

Now you can follow Borealis Artist in Residence Elina Waage Mikalsen‘s journey exploring Sámi experimental music, sonic practices and ways of listening on Instagram! The brand new platform Šuvva is a space for Sámi artists and musicians making sounds from the margins.

Artist in Residence 2022–2024

We’re delighted to welcome Sea Sámi and Norwegian artist and musician Elina Waage Mikalsen as our next Artist in Residence at Borealis. Between 2022 and 2024, supported by the festival, Elina will develop a research, engagement and performance programme that explores the interaction of Sámi history, identity and erasure with experimental sound, music and listening practices.

Now you can get a hold of our beautiful range of merch in our brand new webshop! Get yourself a Borealis bag, or make a friend happy with a pair of “experimental” socks.
