Tickets

Didn't get a ticket? - there is still a chance If you turn up at the door you can get a last minute ticket for a larp if there are vacant spots. This will cost NOK 150 (NOK 100 dicsounted). If you don't get a spot on a larp you will not have to pay anything. Previous years, we have been able to find a spot for last minute tickets about 80% of the time, so the odds are quite good.

Can I join the party even if not participating at Grenselandet? You need a ticket to come in. You can pay the price of a last minute ticket (NOK 150/100) even though you are not playing if you only want to join the party. Or better - you can sign up to help us with pratical stuff (mostly cooking) - and we will both feed you, love you and throw you a party. To volunteer, please contact us at admin@grenselandet.net.

Dying for freedom


When Soviet communism started to crumble, life in Cuba took a turn for the rougher. Especially for those, who listened to music of the enemy - the punk rockers, freaks of rock, los frikis.

Socialismo y Muerte (DK) by Jorgo Kapow tells the story of a small group of Cuban punk rockers, who rebel against poverty and oppression by choosing to inject themselves with HIV-infected blood. Better to suffer the slow death in the freedom of the Sanatoriums than the empty life under Castro's regime."

"I wanna live free! They are kicking me out, they are beating me out, they don't want me to live like a rocker here. They are doing a lot of things to me. I am going to do a lot of things to them... Socialism or death? Death is a door. When you don't have any more doors to open, death is a door.""
~ Papo La Bala - from Radiolab: Los Frikis ~
