A tunnel concert beneath Løvstakken.
Welcome to Depot 1, the Bergen International Festival's newest and most extraordinary venue.
A short walk from Oasen shopping centre and into the new Fyllingsdalen tunnel, you will find a large room that has been blasted into the mountain. Usually, there are huge construction machines in full activity here, but on June 01, work stops. Then, the area is rigged for a concert experience that is something quite out of the ordinary, and the depths of Løvstakken are opened to the public.
The music is by the angelic voices of Edvard Grieg boys’ choir led by Håkon Matti Skrede, and a string quartet from the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. There may be additions to the programme, and details will be announced on fib.no.
When completed, the Fyllingsdalen tunnel will consist of two parallel tunnels: one for the city light rail, and one for pedestrians and cyclists. It will take nine minutes to cycle and 39 minutes to walk through what will be Europe's longest walking and cycling tunnel.
