Hove is situated on the island of TromĂ¸ya, outside the city of Arendal on the Norwegian southcoast.â€¨ There are two airports close to Arendal. Kjevik airport is located outside the city of Kristiansand and Torp airport is located by the city of Sandefjord. If you can get to either of these two airports youâ€™ll save some money, a lot of time and maybe even spare the environment some unwanted CO2. In addition you can use Norway’s main airport, Oslo Gardermoen. Kjevik Aiport is the closest airport. Buses and trains go direct from all three airports to Arendal city.
From Oslo Central Station it is easy to jump on a train or a bus to the city of Arendal, some busses even go directly to Hove during the festival week. From Arendal you can both catch a bus or even better, a tiny ferry, to Hove. There will be a Hove Festival info stand, both at the train station and the bus station, to point you in the right direction. The bus from Arendal will take you all the way up to the festival gate.
Most Norwegians speak decent English, so just wave your hands and ask them for directions and youâ€™ll be fine. Really!â€¨â€¨ In line with our environmental focus, we hope you will all select the most environmentally friendly way to get to the festival.
We have more than a thousand security workers at the festival. Security is handled by Norway’s largest security company. We also have a large number of medical personnel and police on site.

ACCESS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
This is the guide to disabled access and facilities at Hove Festival. We want everyone to be able to enjoy our festival, participate, feel safe, and be part of the crowd and hope to help you make an informed decision about attending.
Disabled consultants, volunteers and gig goers attend and audit our events, and their feedback, with that of our customers, is central to our ongoing work. Weâ€™re keen to hear from festival goers with a range of impairments. If you have any comments about this guide or our service, please send them by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This guide is also available in large print, and can be posted or e-mailed.â€¨ Please note all information may be subject to change, but we will provide updated information on the website.
If you wish to use disabled facilities, we ask you to contact us in advance.â€¨The scheme and disabled facilities are not open to those with temporary conditions such as broken legs, pregnant customers etc. There are medical and welfare facilities on site which are open to all customers, but use of the disabled facilities and campsite are strictly regulated.
Via our 2-for-1 scheme, we may be able to provide disabled ticket holders with a free ticket for an accompanying friend or PA. For all events you must purchase your own ticket as normal and then complete and send us the application form.
* We donâ€™t send out free tickets for accompanying friend or PA in advance: they are issued in person at the box office at the event.
* If you donâ€™t wish to apply for a free ticket, but would like access to the disabled facilities, please let us know and we will try to assist you.
* All applications are at the discretion of Hove Republic and we reserve the right to alter or withdraw arrangements
The festival site is a mixture of grass, woodland, gravel paths and concrete areas. Our accessible camping area can accommodate a maximum of 8 tents & accompanying car. The car should only be taken to the camping area if absolutely necessary as space is very limited. 1 space = 1 tent (no larger than a 4 man tent) and 1 car.
There will be accessible toilets within this camping area and power points for charging electric wheelchairs. Once all spaces in this area are full, you can still apply for a disabled access wristband, free companion and access to the viewing platforms but you will need to camp in the festival camp and park in the main car parks.
Disabled access wristbands give access to viewing platforms located close to the stages for people with access requirements and a companion.
The medical centre will be located in the arena and will be staffed by trained medical professionals.Â It will be open during the arena opening times.Â Outside of these times there will be first aid people available in the campsites who can be reached via operations central or by asking a steward or security person.
If you have any specific needs or questions, please do not hesitate to contact: email@example.com
At Hove we pride ourselves on our environmental credentials and we would encourage everyone to use public transport to get to the festival. However if you have to bring your car, there are some festival car parks where you can pay to park your car.Â Tickets for the car parks can only be purchased at the car park entrance.

At the Hove festival we have more than two thousand volunteers working with us. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for info and application.
Prior to the festival all accredited persons will receive a ticket with their full name by post. This ticket should be presented together with an ID at our Accreditation Office situated close to the entrance of the festival area. Here the ticket will be exchanged with a press wristband which will provide access to the Press Office and other festival areas. The press will not have access to closed back stage areas without special permission. For interview requests, please apply through the artistâ€™s Norwegian record company.
An exchange of accreditation means that on presenting your ID and a purchased ticket in our Accreditation Office, you will receive a press wristband as well as admission to the Press Office. The above also applies to photographers. No freelance photographers without special assignments will be accredited to the Hove Festival.
We will not omit to mention that should space in the pit be inadequate when the most popular artists are performing, admission may be limited. In such cases, we kindly ask photographers to follow the instructions from our Press Office. Most of the artists have sound- and photo restrictions we have to respect. Please bear with us for not being able to extend these limitations.
Accreditation for TV, film and radio may also be applied for via our web pages. Special restrictions apply for recording live images and sound, and TV and film journalists must in addition contact our Press Office responsible:Â email@example.comÂ for separate appointments. NO filming of stages with concerts in progress will be allowed without special permission. Radio- and press interviews must take place in assigned areas.
Closes 1st of June, 2013
The industry accreditation is closed.
