Clarion Hotel - The Hub:
Clarion Hotel The Hub is a renovated, expanded, renamed and new edition of our old official festival hotel Royal Christiania from a couple of years ago. The hotel opens in March 2019 so it will be brand new at the time the festival starts. The rebuilt hotel has a much stronger focus on events and conferences compared to earlier.

The Inferno family; artists and fans, media and music industry will gather at the hotel for four days of happenings, partying and a good night of sleep. During the Inferno week there will be Inferno pre- and after- parties in the bar, black-metal breakfasts, Inferno exhibitions and a hell of a lot of special treats for our guests.

The Hub boasts Oslo's best location, right next to Oslo Central Station. The hotel is currently undergoing renovations and will reopen in March 2019 with 810 modern hotel rooms, 24 meeting rooms and 2 unique bars and restaurants.

Event schedule for band performances is set for the following days pictured below, while Times/Stages can be found at the following link here:
