Øyafestivalen

Øyafestivalen is an annual Norwegian music festival held in Middelalderparken (lit. the Medieval Park), Oslo. It has grown quickly since its modest start in 1999 and has now become one of Norway's biggest festivals [1].

The festival area in Middelalderparken consists of four main stages (Sjøsiden, Enga, Vika, Odden). More than 80 bands played in the park in 2009.

The festival has previously featured musicians like Sonic Youth, Iggy and The Stooges, Arctic Monkeys, Babyshambles, Morrissey and Beck. The first two years, the festival was held on Kalvøya, near Sandvika just outside of Oslo (however, contrary to popular belief, it is not the same festival as the old Kalvøyafestivalen, which was also held at Kalvøya).

After the two initial years, Øyafestivalen was moved to Middelalderparken, downtown Oslo, making it more of a central festival [2]. The festival lasts for four days in Middelalderparken. These days are preceded by a club night where the festival holds concerts in more or less all of Oslo's central clubs.
