Hole in the Sky was a metal festival located in Bergen, Norway that was arranged in the end of August each year from 2000 to 2011.[1]

It was arranged for the first time in 2000, in honor of the then recently deceased Erik "Grim" Brødreskift - ex-member of Borknagar, Gorgoroth and Immortal.[2] A fund in his name, the Erik Brødreskifts minnefond, was established at the same time, and the profit of ticket sales goes into this fund. The purpose of the fund is to promote activities related to metal music in the Bergen area. Money from this fund was dealt out for the first time in 2006.[citation needed]

The festival has had headliners such as Immortal, Mayhem, Obituary, Kreator, Sodom, Destruction, Opeth, Anathema, Danzig, Samael, Satyricon and Taake.[citation needed]

The festival was named after a famous Black Sabbath song, which appears on their Sabotage album.
