About

“Cellolyd i Lofoten” is a small and intimate music festival that takes place every summer (2018: 28th-30th of june). The festival is based in the beautiful fishing village of Reine i Lofoten in the borough of Moskenes, but concerts are also held at several other venues in the Lofoten Islands.

A cello festival may sound rather limited, but we work to provide our audiences with a varied and wide-ranging programme designed to illustrate the wealth of possibilities offered by this fantastic instrument. In addition to our classical and contemporary concerts, we also work together with a variety of vocalists who, on this occasion, replace their own bands with the festival ensemble (consisting solely of cellists). At the “cello pub” you will hear everything from hip-hop to dance music all played on cellos, and from 2014 we also have a permanent children’s event on the agenda.
