Going to a festival this summer? That doesn't have to mean wet tents, dirty showers and bad restrooms. You can actually experience a festival - while sleeping in a great bed, showering in hot water and starting your day off with a delicious breakfast. How? By staying at a Comfort Hotel.
Comfort Hotel x ØYA
In Oslo, Øyafestivalen in August is one of the biggest festivals during summer and we are of course proud sponsors. Headliners this year is Robyn, The Cure, Karpe and Sigrid. All the best nightclub's in Oslo are also collaborating with Øyafestivalen, and there are smaller concerts all over the city that week. This year, Comfort Hotel will also put together a little pre-Øya happening for the people in Oslo, so stay tuned.
We talked to Karoline Holt, Barceptionist at Comfort Hotel® Karl Johan. These are her best tips to get the most out of festival season in Oslo;
– We got 5 Comfort Hotel®'s in Oslo, an they are definitely the place to stay if you're going to a festival in Oslo this summer. In addition to being close to the festival areas, they are close to everything Oslo has to offer so you can get the most out of your day, Karoline says. Her tip is to visit the cozy backyard at Comfort Hotel Karl Johan or the rooftop terrace at Comfort Hotel Youngstorget.
The backyard at Comfort Hotel Karl Johan
Palmesus, also known as Scandinavias biggest beach party, is held in Kristiansand every year. The festival gathers 40 000 party-people at Bystranda to enjoy summer-vibes, sun and an outstanding party. Comfort Hotel Kristiansand is of course located smack in the center of the city, and is also one of the festivals official partners. This year the festival is July 5-6, and headliners include Tiësto, Marshmello, Chainsmokers, Alan Walker and Highasakite.
Festningen Festival is one of Norway's largest festivals focusing on genres like EDM, hip hop and urban music. It's held at Kristiansten Festning in Trondheim, a really unique venue with a fantastic view over the city. This year artists like Karpe, David Guetta, Matoma and Zara Larsson will be playing August 30-31.
Comfort Hotel Trondheim is the official festival-hotel, and there are a lot of activities happening during the festival! like pop-up hairdressers, bar, shops, and of course pre-parties and good vibes.
WAY OUT WEST
Way Out West is a popular music festival held in Sweden’s second biggest city Gothenburg every year. This year, the festival offers a solid mix of the biggest names in the music industry like Cardi B, Zara Larsson and First Aid Kit together with cool up-and-coming artists from all over the world. The festival gathers around 33 000 festival loving people for a 3 day event in one of Gothenburgs biggest and oldest parks Slottskogen. Comfort Hotel Göteborg is a great alternative if you want to live in the city center of Gothenburg while still being close to the festival (about 15 minutes with the tram).
