The Barents Spektakel is Norway´s most border-crossing festival!

The Barents Spektakel is an annual event that builds cultural bridges across real and imaginary borderlines. The five-day festival is a cultural-political cocktail with contemporary art and music, theatre and performance, literature and architecture and seminars and debates as its ingredients – all spiced with current issues related to the Barents Region and the High North in general. The festival first started in 2004 and each February explodes to life as the long polar night comes to an end.

The festival first started in 2004 and in February 2019 will transform Kirkenes into a Barents Metropolis for the 15th time.
