Vill Vill Vest


About Vill Vill Vest

13th and 14th of September 2018 // Bergen - Norway


Vill Vill Vest (Wild Wild West) is a music festival showcasing over 60 Norwegian artists at Bergen's most established venues. From the 13th to the 14th of September the city of Bergen is transformed into one great concert venue where you can discover your new favorite artists in intimate settings. The city on the Western coast of Norway is known for its thriving music scene, and home for internationally acknowledged artists.

In addition to the showcase line-up, the music organization Brak will present an extensive conference program, inviting both national and international participants to debates, talks and seminars.

More than 50% of the music conference will be sessions in English. We are really proud of presenting a programme where there will be talks and panels in a broad range of topics. We dare to say that anyone involved in the music business will have something to learn!

The intention of this year's conference is to highlight the importance of music for people and society. We all associate different soundtracks with specific events of our life. Whenever we hear our favourite tune a powerful cocktail of memories and feelings are set in motion. Music is for everyone, everywhere - a human universal, more powerful than language, and by many seen as something that is partially defining their lives.
At this years festival we ask the question: 'Why Music?' 


Social events

There will be a lot of social events, unofficial showcases and opportunities to visit Mount Fløien and much more of what Bergen has to offer in addition to the music scene.

All info will be sent out to registered delegates prior to the festival.
