The Basics

    Where: Bergen, Norway

    When: June 11-14, 2015

    Lineup Sampler: Patti Smith, Interpol, Calexico, Bastille, Death Cab for Cutie

    The Scene: One of the perks of European festivals are venues like Bergenfest, an open air festival that takes in a medieval fortress and castle smack dab in the center of the city. Bergenfest started as a small intimate blues and Americana festival but quickly grew into one of the leading music events in the Nordic region featuring genres from around the world.

    100 NOS Notes: This tour is about exploration and discovery and the westernmost shores of Norway seems like an ideal place to get lost and find a unique festival in a city where the sun stays out until nearly midnight.
