IMF is known to be the longest running and most extreme annual death and black metal festival in Europe. Founded by Borknagar guitarist Jens F. Ryland in cooperation with Radar Booking in 2001, it takes place at the Rockefeller Music Hall and it certainly has seen its reputation grow among metal fans. While it started from a small two days festival with only Norwegian bands, in 2017 it featured 44 bands from many countries playing around in various places of Oslo, during 4 days of the Easter period. Not to mention that bands and fans, all stay together in the same hotel, in which various heavy metal activities happen during the festival.
