Nordic Mission is a Norwegian distro, label and accessional festival promoter established in 1997 with HQ in Raufoss, Norway. The distro focuses on metal and alternative music with a christian message, or lyrical content we find positive or inspiring. Besides the webshop, working with festivals and stands at festivals has been an increasingly bigger part of our operation with a total amount of about 15 festivals in Norway and Europe the last year.
Among these, big Norwegian festivals as Tons of Rock, Inferno, Karmøygeddon, Seaside Festival, Midgardsblot and other christian related festivals in Europe such as Elements of Rock, Brainstorm and Blast of Eternity. The Nordic Mission label was officially established in 1997, but has in 2017 seen a revival with several releases, and more to come.
Every other year the Nordic Mission crew also hosts Nordic Fest in close cooperation with Sub Scene in Oslo. Nordic Fest is a relatively small indoor festival that takes place in November and hosts around 200 guests and artists. The three headed troll that runs this operation is Pål Dæhlen, Markus Solstad and Rikard Røise.
