ROCK AT THE TOP OF THE WORLD!

The festival has so far released for July 15th - 17 th 2010 artists like Mew (DK), Dinosaur Jr. (US) Clutch (US), Danko Jones (CAN), Datarock (N), The Sonics (US) and BigBang (N).

In 2009 the festival staged artists like Kaiser Chiefs (UK), Eagles of Death Metal (US), The Wombats (UK), Moneybrother (SE), Bob Hund (SE), Motorpsycho (N) and Sham 69 (UK).

The most major artists to have played at Bukta since its start must be said to be (feel free to disagree): Kaiser Chiefs (UK), The Hives (SE), Motörhead (UK), Kent (SE), Phoenix (FR), Mew (DK) and Calexico (US).

We've made a tag at last.fm called "Bukta" where you can have a listen to artists who has, or will, played at Bukta.

Neil Perry in The Guardian wrote: "If Glastonbury has become the Bluewater shopping centre of live music events, then Norway's Bukta festival is the funky little boutique tucked into a side street that you discover by happy accident. Bukta takes place 300 miles inside the arctic circle in Tromsø, frequently described as "a sleepy little town" - except for one weekend in July when the whole place goes endearingly nuts."

SOME HISTORY:
The festival was first staged in 2004, but its history can be tracked back a further two years. In 2002 and 2003 the North of Nowhere festival was arranged in a field near Åsgård, Tromsø.

At the very first Bukta Festival in 2004 roughly 5.000 attendees got to se Norwegian acts such as Sondre Lerche, Madrugada, Span and BigBang at what was considered the greatest festival success in Tromsø in more than a decade.

2005 dawned with a higher level of ambition, with international acts such as Phoenix (FR), Supersuckers (US) and The Soundtrack of Our Lives (SE) grazing the festival stage. Along with higher profile artists, attendance soared to 11.000 visitors. The very same year, Bukta Tromsø Open Air Festival picked up the gauntlet from North of Nowhere, and was awarded the "Festival Of The Year" award.

2006 saw further progression, and the festival was completely sold out a forthnight before the first concert. Some 13.000 attendees got to see among others Motörhead (UK), Danko Jones (CAN), Håkan Hellstrøm (SE), Mew (DK), Kaizers Orchestra, DumDum Boys and Seigmen.

For 2007, the festival was expanded from two to three days, something which enabled the festival directors to book even more acts and further expand the artistic palette of the festival. Many of the attendees will probably remember 2007 as the year Iggy & The Stooges visited Tromsø.

In 2008 the festival added an additional stage, and a total of 28 bands playd for a record crowd. With The festival being sold out all three days, more than 20.000 people got to se amongst others Patti Smith (US), Woven Hand (US), Leningrad Cowboys (FI), Kent (SE) and Raga Rockers.

The festival area has a daily capacity of 6000 people, and consists of two stages.

    Dinosaur Jr. (US) will play at Bukta '10! Despite not gaining much commercial success, the band has enjoyed something of a cult following. The success of singles Freak Scene and Just Like Heaven singles, and recommendations from the likes of Sonic Youth saw them signed by Warner Brothers. The signature Dinosaur Jr. sound is the melodic tunes saturated in layers of guitar noise and punctuated by J Mascis’ elaborate, yet laconic guitar solos. They were a major influence on the up-and-coming band Nirvana.

    Hurra Torpedo (N) and The Blacksheeps (N) will play at Bukta '10! This is part of Saturday mid-day concerts, where you don't have to be 18 yrs. old to attend (but no alcohol served). Hurra Torpedo is Norway’s most famous kitchen appliance band, formed in the early nineties. They are a part of the artistic collective Duplex Records, and all members of the band also play in a variety of other bands in Norway. The band struck international fame when a television performance of the 1983 Bonnie Tyler power ballad “Total Eclipse of the Heart”, using kitchen appliances for percussion, spread as an internet meme. The Blacksheeps participated in the Nordic version of Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2008 with their song “Oro jaska beana”, and won the contest with the majority of the votes from both Sweden, Denmark and Finland. http://www.last.fm/music/Hurra%2520Torpedo?ac=hurra%20torpedo http://www.last.fm/music/The%2520BlackSheeps?ac=the%20blackshee

    BigBang (N) will play at Bukta '10! Bigbang have been dubbed Norway’s Greatest Live Band, and have been a major force in the Norwegian music scene for over a decade. During the past two years, the band has spent time focusing on the American market. Based in California, they have toured the country, playing intimate gigs and promoting their American debut From Acid to Zen, a compilation of songs from previously released albums. The album was very well received and resulted in great reviews among others from Rolling Stone Magazine’s Editor David Fricke: It’s a shotgun buffet, like those early U. S. LPs by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones that combined album tracks and singles from unrelated sessions, and it succeeds the same way: like an instant greatest-hits record. http://www.last.fm/music/BigBang?ac=bigbang

    Hellbillies (N) will play at Bukta '10! Hellbillies are a country rock group from Ål in Hallingdal, Norway. Since their founding in 1990, they have become one of Norway’s most popular recording artists/groups. The group sings only in the Hallingdal dialect (not in English or “standard” Norwegian). When they have covered American songs — as they sometimes did on their earlier albums — they translated the lyrics into Hallingdal dialect and/or wrote new lyrics that reflect contemporary Norwegian people, life and culture. Today, most of Hellbillies recordings are original material. As of 2008, the group has recorded ten albums — two of which are “live” albums. The group has also collaborated with musicians from the US such as Rob Hajacos (fiddle player for Garth Brooks) from Nashville, who plays fiddle on at least three of Hellbillies’ albums. Hajacos has been to Norway twice to do live gigs and record albums with the group. http://www.last.fm/music/Hellbillies?ac=hellbillies

    Clutch (US) will play at Bukta 2010! Clutch is a band from Germantown, Maryland, United States. They have been playing together since the early 1990s. They released their first EP, Pitchfork, in October of 1991. Each of Clutch’s albums is marked by its own distinct and cohesive sound and the band’s musical style may be said to have migrated from hardcore punk to hard rock and blues over the course of their career. Clutch’s lyrics, at first angry and serious in tone, had by the time of 1993’s Transnational Speedway League become characterized by intelligence, wordplay, and often humor (although comedy is not usually the focus). Their songs make frequent reference to history, mythology, popular culture, and religion. Bam Margera often uses Clutch songs in his MTV show “Viva La Bam.” http://www.last.fm/music/Clutch?ac=clutch

    Mew (DK) will play at Bukta 2010! Mew wanted to return to Bukta - Tromsø Open Air Festival, four years after they played last time. And this time they will take a bath in the sea at the beautyful surroundings of the festival! "It's a great festival! The site is very good, the nature is fabulous, and the atmosphere is superb.
