The Movement network

Five festivals join forces, presenting artists from all around the world this autumn in Norway.

In spring 2022, Oslo World proudly presented the Movement network - a new collaboration between festivals in Bergen, Tromsø, Skien, and Molde. The goal is to present a wide array of international music to Norwegian audiences. Bergen International Music Festival is our partner in Bergen, and in addition, we were joined by three brand new festivals - Skien World, Molde Mundo, and Tromsø World. In years to come, we want to share a selection of the artists visiting Oslo World with other Norwegian cities. Hopefully, this will make Norway a more attractive music market for international artists.

The Movement network is a collaboration between Oslo World and festivals/venues in Tromsø, Skien, Molde, Bergen and Stavanger. The goal is to present a wide array of international music all over Norway and make Norway a more attractive concert market for international artists. In 2023 14 different artists toured Norway.

Altogether 40 concerts were performed, with artists from Norway, UK, Ghana, Tuva, Colombia, Mexico, Turkey, Serbia, Bosnia, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Burkina Faso, Belgium, Uganda, Brasil, Vietnam, Congo, and Mali.

Huun Huur Tu was one of fourteen artists on tour in 2023.

In the first 18 years of our festival’s history, Oslo World was part of Concerts Norway (Rikskonsertene). We booked tours at schools and concert venues across Norway. Ever since we became a separate entity, we have looked for an opportunity to become part of a new network. This will come in handy in the years to come - in a post-pandemic world, a lot of festivals and venues will be more risk averse than they used to be. Robust networks can make it safer and more attractive to book artists from all around the globe.
