Gloppen Music Festival started as an association and a meetingpoint for musicians in 2003. In 2008 the foundation Gloppen Musikkfest was established. In 2013, and the eleventh year of the festival, the festival celebrated its 10th anniversary. With festivals completed in 2014 and 2015- and with year-round activities, Gloppen Music Festival is on its way towards another ten years.
Through the years the organisation of GMF has undergone many changes, but the core of the festival is the same: the festival aims to create an active artistic and cultural environment at a high professional level- not just in Gloppen, but in the whole of the region. The artistic vision has been enshrined in the festival statutes since the beginning in 2003. From 2013 GMF gained important subsidies from the county, towards creating a classical music festival for the whole region.
The last few years the festival has developed a year-round programme, with concerts and other activities, and with a focus on young classical performers from the county.
