The majority of Haugesund's population (36,540 inhabitants in 2015) lives in the main urban area that surrounds the city centre, with municipality's northwestern part being fairly rural. The total city area of Haugesund is 72.68 km2 (28.06 ml2).
The pink city hall has been elected the most beautiful building in Haugesund. It was built in 1931 and designed by Herman Munthe-Kaas and Gudolf Blakstad. The hall is one of Norway's finest neo-classical buildings.
During the last 20 years the town has established its position as a major trading centre for Haugaland region and the southern parts of Hordaland county. Haugesund has several relatively big shopping centres, considering the city's size. However, this led to a decline of trade and shopping activity in the centre.
The Norwegian Trad-jazz festival, Sildajazz, is held every August with around 70 bands and close to 200 concerts. Both international and local musicians are presented at Sildajazz. Haugesund is also the main cultural centre for the region, and home to the Norwegian International Film Festival.
"RockFest", the annual rock festival, started in the summer of 2004. It attracted international, national and local pop and rock bands, like Elton John, Madcon, DumDum Boys and Kaizers Orchestra. This unique festival started as part of the celebration of town's 150 year anniversary. The last Rockfest was held in 2009. In 2010 it was replaced by a new concept: Haugesund Live (a series of individual concerts).
