The Hove Festival (Norwegian: Hovefestivalen) was a music festival held on the island Tromøy outside of Arendal in southern Norway.[1] It was held for the first time from 26–30 June 2007. Since 2007 Hove festival has been the largest music festival in Norway.[2] Hove Festival was acquired by Festival Republic in 2008 after going bankrupt. As with other Festival Republic events, there are no age restrictions, and children under the age of 12 are admitted free of charge.[3]

Hove strives to be an environmentally neutral festival[4] with both buying carbon offset quotes for all power and transportation used during and prior to the festival, as well as during the festival all the trash is sorted and recycled. Preparation for the festival relies heavily on volunteer work. In 2010 there were a total of 2,500 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 throughout the festival. 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 performance stages: Hovescenen, Amfiscenen and Teltscenen (tent stage), with Hovescenen being the largest. One of the more recent and prominent acts at Hovescenen was Muse in 2010.
