Two Norwegian September festivals coming up!
Unfortunately I´m not going to any of them, but I hope some of you have the chance.
Kristiandsand´s PUNKT festival has been mentioned already, and a couple of days later Ultima - Oslo contemporary music festival
is starting (10 - 20 September).
Ultima´s theme as described on their site: "2014 is the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian Constitution, and under the theme “Nation”, the festival will focus on how a local musical identity is expressed in the context of an international, digital world".
Some of the artists have been visiting this blog quite a few times: Jenny Hval & Susanna, Maja Ratkje, Helge Sten, Karin Krog and John Surman (he was 70 yesterday, congrats!).
