Træna is one of the country's smallest municipalities with approx. 450 inhabitants. At Husøy there are 381 people. A vibrant society with over 60 pupils at the children's and youth school, a major fishing company, lies 33 nautical miles straight into the sea from Sandnessjøen, in the middle of the polar circle.
The rumor of the special festival atmosphere has reached the music society. Among the artists who have performed are the French artist Manu Chao, Swedish Timbuktu, Irish Damien Rice and British The Correspondents. The Norwegian A-team, led by Sivert Høyem, Susanne Sundfør, Ingrid Olava, Ida Maria, Lars Vaular, Dum Dum Boys, Valkyrien Allstars, Kings of Convenience and many more artists also visit us. Such a small island has limited capacity, so only 2800 festival passes are sold. Træna festival thus becomes an exclusive experience.
