Oslo Culture Night is back! Rejoice!

If I were to rate my top three things it would probably be:

1. Free stuff

2. Cultural stuff

3. Happenings where all of Oslo get together to create a great and free festival.

This year cultural euphoria hits town on friday 12th of september (tomorrow)! It’s finally time for the annual Oslo Culture Night.

Oslo Culture Night is a free festival with events spread all over town. It’s Norways biggest one-day festival, and this year they’ve got their biggest program ever. Experience a wide range of shows, activities and culinary… stuff… on 125 different locations.

Check out their amazing 39 page (!) program (in english) with events from all over town.

Take a course in cooking, watch an interesting debate, visit NRK, check out great concerts or learn martial artis.

We guarantee you that you’ll find something interesting. And if you don’t, then we’re sorry to inform you that you’re kind of a downer.

A week of concerts!

aug 3, 2012 by admin    No Comments    Posted under: Consert, Nightlife

Are you in Oslo 7-11th of august and wondering: what`s up? Øyafestivalen may be responsible for the cool music, heard at a distance from the city center.

At Middelalderparken [Grønland] one of the biggest festivals in Norway presents a lot of good artists. The festival itself is sold out long time ago, but in the night the artists enter clubs and bars around the city. Some bars sell tickets on beforehand, others sell them at the entrance. You can get tickets at the festival area or maybe meet up at the desired bar a bit early. So check the program and be ready for a night or two out at Øyanatt!

On Tuesday the 7th the festival is kick started with 85 concerts on 24 stages that ensure you some music of your liking. Check out the program (club by club) here.

The rest of the week there will be concerts in clubs every night. Program for Øyanatt is here, but check out for more information.
