FEBRUARY: POLAR JAZZ 2020: NARUM We started 2020 With one of the nicest events of the year: the Polar Jazz festival, and this time we had the Norwegian band Narum visiting. They are known for their melodic, beautiful Norwegian Music, and as always there was a great athmosphere and a wonderful evening. It is also the first time we took an organ through the doors at Gruvelageret!

Thom Hell is a great Norwegian artist, and the concert were sold out the minute the tickets was released. As the other years the guetst carried torches and walked up to Gruvelageret in the darkness, and experienced a Nice and intimate concert surrounded by firelit candles. We love the Polarjazz concert also since we know that high season is then about to begin!

TRONDERPARTY (TRØNDERFÆST) In November we got a request from the locals from the middle part of Norway (trøndere) if we could host a traditional "trønderfæst" (party for trøndere). The middle part of Norway is famous for having parties With their traditional Food, rock Music and "karsk" (liquor and coffee).

With a full house and waiting list, and a party that lasted the Whole night long, we can for sure say that there will be a Trønderfæst in November 2019 as well.
