The World’s Northernmost Blues Festival The 11th Dark Season Blues Festival is October 24 - 27, 2013.
he festival is an annual event in late October at 78 degrees north in Longyearbyen. It marks the beginning of the dark season when daylight and the sun is about to leave Svalbard for four long winter months. Dark Season Blues debuted in 2003, starting as a small intimate festival. The 11th festival in 2013 presents about 12 Norwegian and international blues artists during 17 events spread across most of Longyearbyen’s venues, with a total of more than 30 concerts. The festival includes concerts at various pubs, blues lunches and a formal blues dinner. There are also events at the school, the church and even the kindergarten is visited by our artists. The main event is a six-hour Saturday night music marathon with non-stop concerts on two floors at Huset. It all ends with a blues jam Sunday night where the audience gets the opportunity to play together with their blues heroes. The beginning of the dark season, with its blue light, provides a unique atmosphere and inspiration. The intimate local conditions and relaxed atmosphere means artists, audiences and locals mingle throughout the weekend. This creates unforgettable memories and many of our guests come back year after year. We hope to see you on Svalbard in October.
