Sånafest 2014

This year 28 international and Norwegian artists came to the two small villages Hølen and Son, where the festival lasted for three wonderful days. The last day we launched over 60 audience members in canoes, where they could combine the experience of seeing different performances at the riverbank while paddling up the river Såna from Son to Hølen.
