The OiOi Festival in Bergen
Just some images for you, from the OiOi Festival that is happening these days. This festival is happening at the same time as Nattjazz (jazz!) and The Bergen International Festival (classical music). The OiOi philosophy is to book great musicians (and other artists) who are also able to communicate and have fun, and let them perform in quite extraordinary places (on submarines, under water, on top of roofs, in shop windows, hanging from trees and so on) . Great idea?
Pictures from the top: Performance artist Kurt Johannessen, The Vocal Guerilla, a Brazz Brother blowing into the aquarium, and military musicians on a submarine (as you probably guessed). You'll find more OiOi pictures on Flickr.
