The Peer Gynt Festival

The Peer Gynt Festival AKA Peer Gynt AS is an art and culture producer based in Vinstra in the Gudbrandsdalen district.

The Peer Gynt Festival gained status as a 'hub festival' in 2008 (the 'hub festival' system is a public funding system in Norway, Sceneweb's comment) as the first festival within performing arts. The Peer Gynt Festival has three outdoors arenas Friluftsscena (literally: the outdoors venue) by Gålåvatnet (1989), Rondane Høgfjellscene (literally: the high mountain venue at Rondane, 1996) and Fryajuvet (2006).

The first festival was arranged in 1928 - as a centenary celebration of the birth of Ibsen. From 1967 the festival has been arranged annually in Vinstra.
