How to get there
Indiefjord 2021 takes place in Bjørke, a village in the municipality of Volda in Norway. Bjørke is found in the innermost part of the beautiful Hjørundfjord. There are plenty of ways to get to Bjørke for our guests! Please note that the below info is for 2020 (which has now been cancelled due to Covid-19). For 2021 your options should be quite similar, though! Stay tuned.
We will run an indiepop bus on the Friday and Monday like previous years. The travel info (exact timings) will be updated closer to the time, but do email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you already know you’ll be on this bus.
The bus journey to Bjørke is often where new friendships form – the start of a great festival weekend. Oh, and we do go by a supermarket and a cashpoint on the way! If you book a bus ticket, please email us on with your flight times.
The bus departs Ålesund and Ørsta/Volda on the Friday 10.07 and returns Monday 13.07. On the Friday we recommend landing in Ålesund or Ørsta 16.00-17.00 at the latest in order to get to Bjørke in time for the epic welcome party. To avoid having to leave Bjørke (and the disco!) in the middle of the night, do book your return flights as late as possible in the afternoon on the Monday. The ferries don’t run that often, you see.
Please note, as bus seating is limited we hope those who are fairly local/live in the region try to car-share. The bus(es) will go from Ålesund and Ålesund Airport Vigra, Ørsta, Hovden Airport and Volda to Bjørke on the Friday early evening and return from Bjørke on the Monday morning. We can also take you from Kalvatn Nord bus stop and back those days (the night/day bus from Oslo stops there).
