BackBeat is a music
festival located in coastal Norway, in Kopervik on the island of Karmøy,
between Bergen and Stavanger.
The organization BackBeat was founded in 2004 and is based on 60’s and
70’s beat, rock and blues music. The very first festival was arranged in
May 2005, and it was a huge success. The artists were all local, popular
musicians from the sixties.
The concerts 2006 will be held on Friday and Saturday, the 2nd and

Cadillac and Just a Little Teardrop.
