Oslo World Festival 2020

Join Oslo World this week, an annual music festival which has moved into virtual space for 2020, with a conference focused on Solidarity, artistic freedom and other forms of resistance.

Oslo World is an annual music festival that gathers artists from all over the world at venues all over Oslo. Oslo World takes place between Oct 27th - Nov 1st in 2020 in a virtual space to welcome participants from all over the world to experience the festival’s program, as well as exploring new ways of interacting across the globe.

For the first time in our festival's history, the concert program will be solely based on artists who live in Norway. The goal is still to present unforgettable live shows, with the same wide blend of genres and sense of curiosity that we try to deliver every year. Oslo is a small, but global city of music.
