WE WILL NOT YIELD!

We still lack bands for a full program, so we’re cutting the festival down to one day, Saturday only. Tune in at our YouTube channel on Saturday.

The live stream will be FREE and accessible globally for everyone and start at 6 PM CET on Saturday! There will also be a stream with Spanish translation available.

Due to COVID-19 blowing up like crazy in Oslo, we are saddened by the news that Cloth, Flukt and Dalit can’t play at NF this year. Luckily, Renascent was able to play, and we’re super excited!

In addition to the 4 bands, we’ll also talk about our past and future releases as well as answer questions. We have more stuff planned, but for that you will have to wait and see..

It is time to gather the FAMILY again! As all of you know making plans for the future became hard with this blasted virus, but the skull grinding metal train that is Nordic Fest, will not be stopped by negative thinking and worst-case scenarios. So….

We are proud to invite you ALL to the 14th edition of Nordic Fest. For the first time the festival can be experienced from your living room, as we are producing a 5-camera livestream with professional sound and picture. This is to welcome the entire extended Nordic Fest and Nordic Mission family to the venue we all hold close to our hearts: Sub Scene in downtown Oslo.

The stream will be available via our YouTube channel and is free to watch. With the help of Exodo Fest in Mexico and Die X Live in Chile, the streamed festival will also be available to Latin America, with some Spanish subtitles. Not only will the festival have bands playing, there will also be a live studio between the show including reports, interviews and greetings from the scene, news from Nordic Mission and a grand ending with the celebration of the Holy Communion. Be ready with wine and bread!

We will ask humbly for donations during and after the streamed festival. We accept PayPal, Vipps (Norway), Swish (Sweden) and Mercado Pago (Mexico). The money will help cover the production of this festival as well as helping the future of both Nordic Fest and Nordic Mission.

We regret to announce that the Covid-19 edition of the Brainstorm Festival will be canceled. The special show with Eric Clayton and The Nine and Scarlet Stories would take place next Friday at Podium Gigant. The cabinet has just announced that all stages must close, which also puts an end to our show. Anyone who has bought a ticket will receive a personal message tomorrow.

Of course we very much regret the decision, but we respect this difficult decision by the cabinet. We ourselves have our sights set on 2021. Behind the scenes we are working on an unforgettable edition with a better line-up than all our previous editions, and that work is now continuing at full speed. We hope to meet you all again. Until then: stay healthy, watch each other and stay metal!

The 13th edition of the Brainstorm Festival will go into the books as a special corona edition. Instead of two days of fireworks, this year’s festival should be limited to one evening, with room for only two bands. The amount of public has also been limited: there is room for 42 seated visitors.

Now we can mourn the fact that the annual festival cannot take place in normal form. We prefer to look forward to what promises to be a special and intimate evening. Eric Clayton and The Nine (USA / NL) presents their new album and with Scarlet Stories (NL) we have captured a strongly emerging band from the Low Countries.

UPDATE: WOW, the show SOLD OUT in 36 minutes! Super awesome! Thank you to everyone for their support. And for the people who unfortunately cannot be there this year: in 2021 we hope to put on a real bang edition again! And then hopefully you will all be there again!

The other way to “be there” is to watch it online since we are in the stages of finalize the MULTI-CAMERA streaming of the event. More information on this later on.
