Marking their landmark 10th anniversary, the arts and music festival, Ekko Festival returns this year to the compact west coast Norwegian city of Bergen on 25th October – 2nd November.
It’s with an enthusiastic and innovative spirit that the organisers of Ekko Festival invite music lovers and art lovers down to its coastal setting. Each year the festival brings together cooperating partners within the fields of electronic music, film, fine art, video art, and interior architecture, presenting a consistent program that bridges together the multitude of artistic expressions driven forward by Bergen’s creative scene.
This year the festival will host six days of experimental music: with Pantha Du Prince scheduled to open the festival with an all star ensemble of norwegian percussion players to play the newly renovated ”Røkeriet”at USF Verftet – an old sardine factory. Also joining the festival bill will be Jon Hopkins, Actress, Vessels, Andrew Weatherall, Mykki Blanco, Lindstrøm, Holly Herndon, Stockhaus and more. With events taking place over four locations; Østre, USF Verftet, cruciform church – Johanneskirken and Logen Teater.
It might well be one of the smallest electronic music festivals around, but Ekko Festival is an intimate and eclectic affair featuring the finest in underground Scandinavian and international talent.
