Inferno Music Festival: Norway’s Black Metal Tourism

Inferno Metal Festival is an annual extreme metal festival
in Oslo. The festival was founded by Borknagar guitarist Jens F. Ryland in
cooperation with Radar Booking in 2001 and takes place at Rockefeller Music
Hall in Easter.  With a solid focus on
the world’s best black metal bands, the Inferno Festival in Oslo celebrates its
twelfth anniversary this year.  Few
Norwegian music festivals can equal the international status of the Inferno
Festival, which was voted as one of the 10 best in the world by leading music
magazines and it continues to grow to be the world’s metal community’s most
important gathering.  Conference and Film
Screening

It is worth noting that this important organized event is
not just a music festival. Inferno, destined to be an ongoing hit, also
includes exhibitions, conferences and film screenings.  For example, the IMC, Inferno Music Conference,
is held simultaneously with the Inferno festival every year in Oslo. This is
the only conference of its kind for artists, labels, magazines, festivals and
media within the extreme metal genre to come together.  Inferno also offers daily screenings of
rarely seen cult classics, Norwegian horror films with English subtitles and
music documentaries under the name of Inferno Film.  Also, at the festival’s sponsored hotel Royal
Christiania there are film previews. Inferno Film is held at Cinemateket in Filmens
Hus, a five minute walk from the festival hotel and just two blocks from Elm
Street.

Inferno Supports
Norway’s Black Metal Tourism

 For four days during
Easter, metal lovers from all over the world flow to experience this unique
metal experience in Norway’s capital. Not that surprising, since Norwegian
black metal is known all over the world and is Norway’s largest music export
abroad.  The festival has become bigger
over the years and has gone out with several big names this time than ever
before. The drawing in of more curious visitors to the country because of this
Norwegian black metal 4heydayperiod is the most concrete evidence of this
trend.

Meanwhile, Inferno’s growing popularity continues to support
black metal tourism, which is an established phenomenon, although it’s not
exactly the Norwegian Tourist Board that takes care of marketing. For several
years now, Inferno Festival has been arranging bus tours of sightseeing, among
other things. At Inferno, you meet with fellow metal heads for four days of
head banging, partying, black metal sightseeing, expos, tattoos, horror film
viewings and art exhibitions.
