Team Effort & Dual Lives

Putting together the Ice Music Festival each year is a massive undertaking because of the uniqueness and raw fragility of creating musical instruments out of ice.

Behind the scenes, there's a core Ice Music Festival team who have worked together for years and once the winter months arrive each year, they club together and put the production plan into motion. Living in many different countries, the team takes time out of their own professional lives to produce the festival. 

One of the team is our incredible stage and arena designer Helder Neves, who's from Portugal and a fully qualified architect. After moving to Norway a few years ago, he also decided to start a different sort of winter season company - namely a aurora borealis tour company. Yep, Helder co-founded NorthernShots Tours, the best aurora touring company way up north in Tromsø.
