Headwind music festival
Victoria Jazz Scene 4. – 6. July
As the headwind festival itself states: Norwegian cultural life is largely sponsored by "dirty" money (www.motvindfestivalen.no). An active group of firefighters are protesting against war profiteers, weapons production and the export of deadly weapons. They have neither leaned nor stood in front of the Parliament and demonstrated and screamed, nor have they made a fiery documentary. They have chosen to protest in the form of an annual music festival pro peace, pro freedom and pro quality music: Headwind. Through this modest but very dynamic and not least uncompromising festival they have since 2016 annually protested against the dance macabre that exists between Norwegian cultural life and what they refer to as questionable companies: Kongsberg Gruppen, Nammo and Equinor.
The fiery souls in Motvind kulturlag sincerely believe that weapons, ammunition and oil have nothing to do with art. . .
