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 conference this year will centre around the topic values in the music industry, both in terms of income, rights and agreements, but also in the form of message conveyed through music and what it means for our society.

Club music
This year the festival will have a particular focus on the club-culture and scene, with interesting key-note speakers, panels and talks, and also a broad club-program in the nighttime in addition to the showcase line-up.

Music meets film
The Bergen International Film Festival takes place the same week, and together we will explore the crossroads where music and film meets, among other, themes such as music videos and synch. We also have a collaboration with Bergen Design Festival taking place the same week.

Social events
There will be a lot of social events, unofficial showcases and opportunities to visit Mount Fløien, KODE museums and 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.
