Guardianship arrangement

At some of our concerts with an age limit, you who are under 18 can enter with a guardian. The concerts in question are marked in the program on our websites. The guardian must be a responsible adult over the age of 25, and the guardian cannot drink alcohol at the concert venue. Both the young person and the guardian must buy a ticket to the concert, the guardian form is filled in at the concert venue. At concerts in Nordic Hall, both young people and guardians must stay in their own youth zone during the entire concert.

PS! The festivals have their own guardians for young people who participate in the Youth Festival and NUK



You are not entitled to a refund for lost or stolen tickets, and cannot demand that new tickets be issued. If your ticket is damaged/destroyed, you can in most cases have a new ticket printed if you present the damaged ticket. Contact Harstad Kulturhus or Festspillhytta on Torvet.


If the performance is canceled or moved, you are entitled to a refund of the ticket. The ticket fee is not refunded. Tickets for the rescheduled performance are still valid and can be used for this one.


Chapter 5 Section 19 of the Right of Withdrawal Act deals with limitations in the Right of Withdrawal Act. Clause b states that: "In the case of distance sales other than telephone sales, the right of withdrawal does not apply to individual services if the seller undertakes to deliver the service at a specific time or within a specific period of time at the conclusion of the agreement". Individual services that are delivered at a specific time or within a specific time period are, for example, theatre, cinema, concert and plane tickets. In such cases, you are instead referred to the applicable cancellation rules. Purchased tickets are not refundable.
