All eyes on Bergen for two days of conferencing and festival

Vill Vill Vest is back for another edition in Bergen. Now in its third year, the music conference and festival aims to bring Norwegian and international music industry together and showcase some of the most exciting new acts in the country.

Vill Vill Vest goes from Thursday-Friday, with several parties and mini-festivals planned across the city on Saturday, all presented by Bergen based music companies.

Festival chief Simen Korneliussen aims to create a space where artists and industry can meet and connect.

– Vill Vill Vest is three years old, how about that! This year a big crowd of speakers will lead you to all different aspects of the music business. Successful origin stories, songwriting, afterparties, digital culture or meeting important institutions. With this we hope to create a space where artists and others can meet, exchange ideas and experiences, or just get to known each other better.

– Even though we cannot guarantee cake, we can promise a thunderous party and a great festival. We are showcasing more than 60 artists and have a more ambitious conference program. There will be intimate experiences and big emotions with both up and coming artists and more familiar faces in new constellations.

Over 60 artists are set to play the festival this year. Listen to them below
