Safe at the festival

Festspillene i Nord-Norge have worked thoroughly on what measures will ensure safe events for both the audience and artists. We want to make it as trying as possible to participate in this year's festival. We have worked thoroughly with infection control measures and love to take your safety seriously. Together with you, we will ensure that distance is observed and hand alcohol is available in all arenas.

As an audience member, we encourage you to

  • Keep your social distancing efforts also during the festival - at least 1 meter
  • Remember your hand hygiene and cough etiquette, there will be disinfectant at all venues
  • Bring a mask to wear on arrival of the venue, and put it on when leaving the event 
  • Consider your own health condition - if you have symptoms of respiratory disease, don't feel well or if you are in quarantine - stay at home
  • Show consideration for others
  • Make sure you have plenty of time in the arena, both before and after the show
  • Follow guidelines from our audience hosts - they will direct you to the right place for unnumbered seats
  • Make sure the correct name and contact information is given on every ticket you buy
  • Be patient with group entrances in some arenas, follow the signs and information in advance
  • Download the festival app when it is released in May - if you mark the performances you are going to there, you will be able to get extra information in advance of the performance
  • Follow the guidelines of the audience host, and do not move chairs that are set up with the required distance

This is what Festspillene will do to increase safety

  • It will be possible to keep a distance of 1 meter to other cohorts
  • There will be extra cleaning of contact surfaces
  • There are face masks available at the arena if you need them
  • All national and local guidelines are followed
  • All arenas have audience hosts who can help you
