Description:This is the largest music festival in Norway and children under 12 are admitted free.
It takes place on the fantastic island of Tromoya just outside Arendal in southern Norway.
Hove strives to be an environmentally neutral festival with both buying carbon offset quotes for all power and transportation used during and prior to the festival, as well as during the festal all the trash is sorted and recycle. Preparation for the festival relies heavily on volunteer work. In 2010 there were a total of 2500 people volunteering for security, stage hand, drivers, kitchen duty and post-festival cleanup. Hove consists of several different areas such as the Camp area, Festival area and Zero area. The camp holds up to 10,000 campers and is open 24/7 throughout the festival. Those who wish to enter the camp need to have both a camp bracelet and a festival bracelet. The festival area, including the shopping street is open to everyone who has a day bracelet or festival bracelet. The Zero area, which has several fast-food shops, is open to everyone with or without bracelet.

The festival has three main perfomance stages: Hovescenen, Amfiscenen and Teltscenen (Tent stage), with Hovescenen being the largest.
