Hestival combines electronic dance music and horse racing to create a summer festival in Norway like you’ve never seen before. All day you’ll hear some of Norway’s top DJ’s playing their best tracks and on the horse track you’ll see the fastest horses and jockeys from all over Scandinavia.

Øvrevoll is Norway’s only gallop racecourse and is located only about 20 minutes from Oslo by car or public transport. In addition to the music and horse races, some of Norway’s most popular food trucks will be there to satisfy your hunger cravings and plenty of bars will be serving beer, cocktails, and champagne to quench your thirst.  The racetrack will close at 22:00 but the party won’t stop so head to Jæger for the after party in Oslo!
