The children's festival: Thursday

Full program for Barnivalen, Thursday at Kvarten

Concert start: 11:00-16:00 Single ticket price: NOK 150

Little Beetle //at 11:30 on the Main Stage

The starting point for this project is a shared fondness for a treasure of a children's album by the northern Norwegian artist Terje Nilsen. The album "Lille Bille" received the Spellemannpris and was widely praised for its strong songs and surprising, funny and poetic lyrics for children of all ages. Here are songs about little detectives, all the strange things that people throw on a midsummer bonfire, about how strange it is that the earth is actually round and lots of other fun things. The performers have collectively played over 2000 children's concerts, and are passionate about the importance of communicating art to children and young people.

Cast: Ole Jørn Myklebust (vocals and trumpet), Håvard Bendiksen (guitar), and Hallgrim Bratberg (guitar)





Green Melody // at 12:15, 13:45 and 15:15 in the Workshop tent 

Would you like to join an orchestra with a professional musician and try instruments made of plastic, wood, cardboard, metal? Did you know that you can play on rubbish and old toys? Here, the recycling mindset is communicated to the children in a playful way. Join saxophonist Frøy on the hunt for fine melodies and exciting sounds. Experience that music is everywhere, everything can be instruments and that everyone can play. A magical musical experience for 3-8 year olds!

Tournament with Sebastian Stavland // continuous tournaments all day!

In 2018, Sebastian Stavland became one of the most high-profile Fortnite players in Norway. This spring, he has worked with several celebrities to promote esports, and collect money for the Cancer Society. Now he comes to us to play tournaments with and against you - who knows, maybe someone will actually manage to win against Sebastian Stavland himself! 

There will be tournaments continuously throughout the day and there are prizes waiting for the winners! Everyone is welcome, experienced and inexperienced players, and we certainly encourage mum and dad to try their hand.


The theater committee // at 12:30 and 14:00 pm in the Theater tent 

- the performance where the Barnival audience helps decide the story!

Will 800 lions come down from the roof? Does the monster smell like puke or farts? Does the hero get laser vision or pink hair? Or is something completely different happening? You decide!

All stories have been created once. Some have thought about what the main character does, what choices the bad villain makes and whether the story ends well or badly. Someone has to make the choices so that exciting things can happen. Making a story is mostly about making choices - steal the plane or not, kiss the boy or not, hide or not, raise your hand or not. The theater committee is an improvised performance in which the audience participates in various ways and influences the action. Suitable for everyone from 5 years.

Swing'it Dixie Band //13:00 on the Main Stage

Do you like Disney? Do you like jazz? Then this is the perfect show for you! 
Swing'it Dixieband serves well-known and beloved Disney songs disguised in dixieland and swing and serves a fun show for both young and old. With over 350 views on Youtube, their Disney songs have been a hit all over the world, and in 000 they reached the semi-finals of Norwegian talents.
This is a completely different band that you shouldn't miss!

The Flying Seagull Project: Circus, magic and fun //all day for the whole family! 

The Flying Seagull Project consists of musicians, actors, clowns, magicians, dancers, artists and all kinds of people who have goals in common;

To spread laughter and joy to those who need it most in the world. So far we have visited over 130 children in hospitals, orphanages, special schools, in slums and in refugee camps.

We believe that everyone has the right to a childhood filled with play, laughter and love.
We believe that those who have the most difficulty have the right to a break where they can just play and laugh, and forget everyday life for a moment. We believe that laughter prolongs life and that it is never too early, too late or too serious to spread joy to those around us.

The Flying Seagulls Norway is looking forward to spreading laughter at the Kongsberg Jazz Festival. It will be a wonderful mixture of fantastic performances, magnificent circus, silly conjuring and fun activities. We will have our own little area where things will take place throughout the day. This is suitable for everyone aged 0-100 and the only thing we are looking for is their laughter.

The income from Barnivalen will go directly to this autumn's big project in Asia. Over the course of 10 weeks, The Flying Seagulls will visit children and families on the run in Bangladesh, visit orphanages and institutions in India, as well as families who have lost everything in the natural disasters in Nepal. We want to visit between 10 and 15 thousand children, and see at least as many smiles.

Denver Jazz club Youth All-Stars//at 14:40 on the main stage 

This atmospheric jazz band has made the trip all the way from Denver to be with us. The band consists of seven promising young musicians who together have visited a very good handful of jazz festivals and jazz clubs across large parts of Europe and the USA. 
Guaranteed good atmosphere at quarter time this morning! 
Cast: Ivan Martin (Clarinet), Nathan Bailey (Tenor Sax), Abby Husted (Trumpet), Thomas Neal (Trombone), Ben Jablonski (Banjo), Christie Macfarlane (Piano), Ben Husted (Bass), and Antonio Giovanetti (Drums ).
