The world’s only Ice Music Festival since 2006!
We were so sad to inform the need to cancel the Ice Music Festival Geilo 2018 (please see our statement in English & Norwegian here: https://www.icemusicfestival.no/newsmain/ice-music-festival-geilo-cancelled ) so we have tried our very hardest over the last 2 weeks to seek out a new location with 'guaranteed' cold weather and that hard work as paid off. We are happy to announce a smaller, more intimate festival of Ice Music surrounded by the wonderfully icy and snowy mountains of Finse on February 2nd & 3rd 2018.

Only accessible by train, Finse's location is truly exotic - boasting the amazing Hardangerjøkulen and Blåisen icefall, extraordinary panoramas which Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton all used to train on for their Artic and Antarctic adventures. Star Wars fans also pay homage to the plateau, as the Empire Strikes Back's ice planet Hoth scenes was filmed at Finse.

Under extremely dark skies, you will experience Ice Music in its purest form.

We're so excited #icemusicfestival2018!

Friday Feb 2nd

22.00
Igloofonarium! What is this? An igloo made out of frozen water, and ice horns connected to the igloo from the outside. Inside the igloo you will find the audience only! Duration 20 minutes, as the weather gets very cold. NOK 175,-

24.00
The purest sound of Ice - acoustic Ice!
A little meditation using Ice Percussion only. Expose yourself to the wintery sonics of Finse's frozen lake, Finsevatnet. Duration 20 mins as the weather gets very cold. NOK 175,-

Saturday Feb 3rd

17.00hrs
Glacier Speaks: we will try to make instruments out of the amazing 350m thick Hardangerjøkulen glacier that overlooks the Finse plateau.
Arve Henriksen: Ice, voice and electroics with Anders Jormin on Ice Bass. Duration 45 minutes. NOK 375,-


The venue location will be approximately 100m from the world famous Finse 1222 Hotel which itself is situated right next to the train station platform - very important, as Finse is only accessible by train during the winter months.
Be aware that there are limited numbers of tickets for each concert!

Please note that the weather in Finse can be very cold, easily reaching -20ºC. The colder temperatures are perfect for the incredibly dynamic fragility of Ice Music because the colder the air temperature, the clearer the sound of Ice, which displays a far wider dynamic range. So seek out your warmest clothing and join us on a truly exotic aural journey!

We are aware that housing opportunities in Finse is limited, therefore we recommend staying in Geilo and take the train to Finse. Please, use https://www.nsb.no/en/frontpage to see the time tables and buy train tickets. Also, please see www.geilo.no for information about accommodation and other activities.
