What is LOUD?
LOUD! is an annual band camp for girls and transgender people in the age group of eleven to seventeen. Through a week filled with songwriting, band rehearsals, new friends and live concerts, LOUD! aims at building confidence and music interest for its participants in a creative and supportive environment. The camp is open to everyone, regardless of their previous music knowledge. You can therefore participate even if you don't have any experience with singing or playing an instrument from before. People with experience are also very welcome. The participants are divided into bands with various backgrounds, in order for them to learn from each other.
In 2017, there are two camps; one from June 24th to 30th and one from July 2nd to 8th. The camps are held at Haugetun Folkehøgskole outside of Fredrikstad. Participation costs 3500 NOK, but a reduced price is available for families in need.
