Only one week before everything closed down again, we arranged more than 30 concerts, with musicians from all over the country, in 12 venues all over Oslo. In retrospect it feels a bit unreal.
Oslo World is a festival that brings the world to Oslo and since that wasn’t possible this year, we had to find the world within our own city. That was not a problem, we have an incredibly diverse music scene in this country. The world is all around us. It’s already here.
Thanks to our volunteers, technicians, all the people working in the venues, and not least the audience and musicians. This could not have happened without you.
