Oslo, Norway. Tons of Rock is Norway's largest metal and rock festival and the major highlight for rock and metal fans in Norway. In 2021, the event was canceled due to the corona situation and strict infection control. After two years of covid-19 and community shutdowns, people could finally enjoy being together again. Summer festivals are highly anticipated and popular places to visit for all kinds of people.
