About the festival

Oslo World is a six-day festival that presents world music of all kinds. In the course of the festival more than 300 artists from all corners of the world play different concert venues in the centre of Oslo.

Oslo World usually takes place in the end of October and beginning of November – in many ways the perfect time for a festival like this. Oslo can be quite cold and dark at this time of the year, but at Oslo World you can get the feeling of being in more exotic places: Go to the Arabic countries with great raï artists, or let intense yoiking take you to Arctic regions. Move your feet to tabla techno, or swing your hips to afro salsa. Follow the stars of world music and go to wherever you want.
