We can now finally confirm that Indiefjord 2020 will be cancelled. The Norwegian Government has today announced that they may extend the border control for 90 days until August 15. Consequently anyone crossing the Norwegian border from abroad would on arrival immediately be put in quarantine for 14 days. Indiefjord is an international festival, and we simply cannot imagine a festival without our friends and bands from all over the world.
The social distancing of 1 meter is still in force, and the number of people allowed to gather at public events by the middle of July is likely to be low. As per the government’s regulations it is impossible for our festival to take place in Bjørke this summer – we would not want to put the bands, audience and villagers at risk.
More info to follow in a few days regarding options for festival ticket holders.
Those who have booked and paid for flights should now be in position to seek a refund from the airlines due to the extended border control in Norway. Please contact your airline or travel agency to organise this. Indiefjord has no entitlement to intervene in such private transactions
So stay connected. We will do our utmost to make you happy regardless of these most unhappy of circumstances – and to bring indiepop to the fjords yet again.
Just remember: Indiefjord is still alive and kicking because it is not just an event among other events – it is a spiritual movement. And next year will be the great revival. Thank you for your heartfelt understanding, dear friends!
As the gates are closing for Indiefjord 2020, we are looking forward to opening them again in 2021.
Music and love for all,
