Part music conference, part festival, all Nordic. You don't get much cooler than that.
If you want to learn more about the Nordic music industry, get onto Wikipedia. If you want to learn about the Nordic music industry and have a spare £242, then the by:Larm conference is for you. Whereas if, like us, all you want to do is get down to some sweet Nordic jams in the beautiful city of Oslo, the best decision you can make is to head to the festival portion of the by:Larm extravaganza.
With breaking artists from all over the Nordic area, and a great mix of industry peeps, musical thrill-seekers and chic locals, you're guaranteed to feel right at home no matter who you are. It's been described as, "A music showcase that is so cool, it makes the weather outside seem positively tropical." We couldn't put it better ourselves.
The weather is not actually tropical. In fact, it's basically the opposite. Pack a vest.
Full lineup here.
