A blast wave of creativity arose in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, similar to how a thousand pink cherry blossoms tend to pop up overnight. This is why Beirut & Beyond International Music Festival was founded in 2013, in partnership with our own music festival. On Thursday the 2nd of November we bring Beirut & Beyond to Sentralen and fill the building with music, dance, talks and design from The Middle East.
In addition to seminars, pop up and concerts with Love & Revenge, Kinematik og The Great Departed, Assaad Awad will be a part of this year’s Beirut & Beyond in Oslo. The world-known designer, who has designed clothes and jewelry for big names such as Madonna and Lady Gaga, as well as fashion houses like Balenciaga og Mugler will make an installation with his work – jewelry and haute coutoure.
