A literary concert

Past events:

Unfortunately, Norwegian author Karl Ove Knausgård has cancelled his performance on 23 May at the Bergen International Festival.  

Instead of the literary concert Karl Ove Knausgård with friends in the Festival Square tent, Norwegian folk musician Ingebjørg Bratland will be performing in the evening of 23 May.
