Many heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped create the Karlsøy Festival this year. Welcome back to the small island with the big heart both during and outside the festival season. Feel free to check out the Facebook group FRIENDS OF THE KARLSØY FESTIVAL and sign up for the newsletter further down this page if you want to continue being part of the Karlsøy Festival. Everyone who participated will receive an invitation to join the autumn meeting (date to be announced) on Karlsøya and join the festival association on a year-round basis. Peace out <3
Welcome to a unique experience at 70 ° north. Every summer we invite you to a week-long party and celebration at the festival site on Karlsøy in Troms. True to tradition, there will be music, art exhibitions, dance, workshops and current political debate and information from Karlsøya's perspective.
Karlsøya is a lush island with a mythical and exotic history. In the early 70's, young people moved to the island threatened with eviction to create their utopian society and live by their own rules. Today, Karlsøya is a fairly common little weather in North Troms, but already when you set foot on the quay you notice that here it is safe to shrug your shoulders and see the world with a slightly more generous perspective.
