Slottsfjell's new festival area is right in the center of Tønsberg and very easy to access. It has all the benefits of city life with plenty of nightlife and food but also 20 acres of beach. Our photographer, Anne-Marie Forker, was there to check out some of the music, and captured Nothing But Thieves, Arif, Highasakite and Rema.
English rock band Nothing But Thieves arrived only 15 minutes before their set, but delivered a high energy performance. Their latest album "Dead Club City" has just reached No 1 in the UK.
Next up was Norwegian rapper Arif, who played to a large audience on the main stage and it was easy to see why he is one of the most respected names in Norwegian hip hop.
Indie pop Highasakite delivered a stunning performance and Ingrid Helene Håvik's expressive delivery had the crowd in the palm of her hand.
Rema, a young singer, rapper and musician from Nigeria who calls his music "Afrorave" delivered one of the most dynamic individual performances of the day, and covered almost every inch of the stage.
