Ice Music Festival (initiated 2006 in Geilo, Norway) is a “glacial instrument” festival founded by Terje Isungset together with Pål Knutsson Medhus. Isungset had the idea behind the festival and remains the creative director. Today, the festival is run by a board of volunteers in cooperation with Visit Geilo.
The festival is unique because everything, including the venue, instruments, and art, is made of ice and snow. It takes place on every first full moon of the year in Geilo, Norway.
Around 30 volunteers and students work alongside ice carvers, designers, ice cutters, architects and artists for 10 days leading up to the festival to make adequate preparations.
