The festival is proud to present Stamsund Hornmusikk, one of the most important cultural institutions in the local society. If it’s raining, snowing, or blowing dogs and cats – they are there for us on important days. They have participated on all festivals since 1998.

A small horn music band in Lofoten consisting of about 20 members. We are a cheerful and merry gang. Stamsund Hornmusikk was established in 1907, and has since been subjected to several ups and downs. In the interwar period the band went into hibernation, but woke up again in 1937. Not long after we had another break due to the second world war, but the 8th of May 1945 we rose again and have been steadily blowing our horns since.

 The band have been threatened with discontinuation many times, but thanks to the strength and enthusiasm of its members, Stamsund Hornmusikk is still alive and doing well. 

Today we are 20 happy horn blowers. Our current leader is Hanne Straum Riise and our chief conductor is Bjørnar Evjen.
