Dark nights and blue notes in Longyearbyen

Friday, October 26, was the official onset of the polar night. The sun will remain behind the horizon until February 15. Because of the mountains surrounding Longyearbyen, the sun will not be seen again in town before around March, 08.

The beginning of the polar night is traditionally the time for the “Dark Season Blues Festival”, featuring local, Norwegian and international Blues acts. From Friday to Sunday, good, handmade music can be seen and heard in Longyearbyen’s pubs.
