Oslo World

As winter draws near, Oslo's most international music festival takes place. Many of the artists who perform at Oslo World are big stars in their part of the world, but may be new acquaintances for most Norwegians.

The theme of this year's festival is "freedom". Freedom to love, freedom to move, freedom to resist, to express and freedom for sale.
