Kongsberg Jazz Festival is committed to being open and providing access for everyone. However, since some of the festival venues are old buildings, this is sometimes challenging.
Below you will find a list of the concert venues and their level of accessibility.
Accompanying carers (ledsagerbevis)
Kongsberg Jazz Festival accepts proof of eligibility for accompanying carers at all concerts. For seated concerts at the Kongsberg Music Theatre we have reserved space for disabled audience members on the balcony.
