4. “Bryggefest” with “No Name” (23 June)

Welcome to a bopping evening with local heroes playing famous funky pop tunes from the past 10 years. The whole quayside will rock to the beat when No Name breaks into Europe’s “Final Countdown”.

We recommend you book a table for dinner before the concert. Be quick! We’re talking Midsummer Eve here.

6. Lakeside concert with Lewi Bergrud and Christian Ingebrigtsen (4 August)

We’re so lucky to bring back Lewi Bergrud to entertain on the jetty again this August. This year, he will be accompanied by the fantastic Christian Ingebrigtsen from A1 fame, so this is a concert you can’t afford to miss. Welcome to Evjua’s summer concert by the lake!
