Our friends at Nordic Mission are back with a new edition of their own Christian metal festival, Nordic Fest which will be held October 27-28th this year and the place is Sub Scene, Oslo downtown, Norway. The organisation checked in with the following
Dear friends! There have been 4 long years with silence since Nordicfest had the epic 10th anniversary in November 2011. It was a Grand finale for sure, and we have a lot of wonderful memories. This was the perfect way to end an era.. But in the aftermath of the anniversary we could feel that our hearts were still not at peace. A yearning slowly grew through the silence and after a while it gave life to a dream. A dream of gathering the family again..
Now the time is here! From the shadows of the valley of death, Nordicfest is resurrected!
This time we will give you a festival that is musically more brutal and extreme then ever before! Blasting bands and amazing people will come together and celebrate faith and friendship! It is a great pleasure for us to welcome you to Nordicfest 2017! See you in Oslo in October!

This festival has grown from almost a faint sound into a full blasting series of concerts. Beginning with only 6 bands, one night of shows and a small, but happy crowd. Now, the festival has grown into an event of loud and excellent metal, a bandlist to cry for, seminars and loyal visitors from many different parts of the world.
The metal/hardmusic scene is changing and producing sounds never heard before. What better place to host this festival than Oslo, a city with a burning heart for Heavy Metal! Located at Sub Scene, in the middle of the night club district, the festival has a perfect venue. The venue is alcohol free, which means there are no age limits to the show. Caring for a beer, there are bars on every corner of the city.
Merchandise and newly released cds from the bands are for sale, and is one of the most favorite topics of conversation between coffey cups and entangled hair from the headbanging. People of different styles and background can feel at home, just sit back and enjoy the ride. So pack your earplugs and get going! The fun is about to begin…
