The festival is held over two days - Friday and Saturday - in the early autumn, and relies on the effort of volunteers and support from the community. It started with a small event in 2005, but in just a few years the festival has "grown up" and become one of the biggest rock festivals in Norway.

As the name Granittrock ("Granite Rock") implies, rock music is the festival's main ingredient, but hip-hop also plays an important part. The family-friendly profile and the large number of local bands makes Granittrock an important cultural event for the inhabitants of Groruddalen. At the same time there are always some bigger names on the programme, making the festival worth the trip for those not living in the area. Bands like Turbonegro and Big Bang have been among the headliners of previous Granittrock festivals.
