Øya festival is the largest outdoor music festival in Oslo, the capital of Norway and one of the most discerning in Europe. Promoting a diverse line up from across the globe, 2010 saw standout performances from the likes of Pavement, M.I.A, Iggy & The Stooges, Flaming Lips, LCD Soundsystem, The XX, The Specials, Robyn, Paul Weller and The National.

Øya is held in a medieval park, a picturesque spot surrounded by sandy beaches, the Oslo Fjords, the green Ekeberg Hill and the Oslo skyline. Rooted deep in history, the medieval park is also the place where the capital of Norway was founded a thousand years ago. For 4 days in the middle of August, the Medieval Park in Oslo is transformed into an arena for musical, visual and cross-cultural performances. The Øya Festival is an energetic and symbiotic experience with a unique atmosphere and audience that bares resemblance to no other.

Amidst the festival area of trees, green grass and water, the festival is well equipped with stages, shopping streets and small shops serving food (almost 100% organic and locally sourced) and drink. The site creates an exciting rendezvous between nature and culture, being just a short walk from the city centre of Oslo.

Øya Festival is officially recognised as one of the greenest festivals in Europe, having won the “Greenest Festival in Europe” at the European Festival Awards 2010 and also the ”Green ’n’ Clean” award.

– Øya teams up with Field Day and Club NME for two February London shows

Additionally, Øya Festival is delighted to announce two special London shows in February with their friends at Field Day and Club NME, featuring a mix of both hotly tipped Norwegian and UK acts. New Nordic talents Lucy Swann and Team Me will join Fiction and Not Squares at the two shows at London’s XOYO on February 24th and KOKO the following night.

Additionally, Øya has teamed up with Rough Trade to release a limited edition 7” single. The double a-side will feature Lucy Swann and Team Me and be available from February 7th exclusively from Rough Trade. This project is done in collaboration and supported by Music Export- Norway´s London office.
