Once the weather gets (a bit) warmer and the nights a bit brighter, Norwegians flock to outdoor events, making the most of the short Scandinavian summers and cramming in as many festivals as you can shake a tent pole at.

One of these events is Stavern Festival, held in the town of Larvik in the country’s southeast. It’s a lively pop and rock festival that started out in 2001 with a total audience of just 175 people.

In recent years the festival has scooped some of music’s very biggest names. Bob Dylan appeared in 2014, while Elton John and Pharrell Williams took to the stage at the Larvik Golf Arena the following year.

This year Swedish House Mafia, Bastille and Tinie Tempah are playing, and the festival is sure to live up to the laid-back Scandinavian festival vibe.
