NOK 10,000 and 10 hours by car. “We've been waiting for over six months,” says Liz Pandehagen (21).

Currently the summer festival is in full swing. There is already a good atmosphere in the camp belonging to the Stavern festival.

– Part of the experience

During weekend stays, girls and campers share a bathroom, toilet and make-up mirror.

– It's a bit rubbish, but part of the experience, the girls tell VG.

But despite the high price and freezing rain, the gang is satisfied.

– It's so much fun, we've been looking forward to it for over six months.

– Not here to sleep

The gang of boys has several tents one after the other and they have brought much needed supplies with them.

Space is tight in the tents, but this group doesn't mind. They reached the area last night.

– We didn't sleep much, but that didn't matter, the Stavern was not for sleeping, but for having fun.

They got together for a “beer pong” with someone they met at the same festival last year.

– The best thing about Stavern is the guys, says Lund.
