Since August we have been planning our new festival site in Tøyenparken and surrounding areas. Tøyenparken is a park on the east side of the city center, just a 15 minute walk from our old area in the Medieval Park.
We want to make the new Øya just as good as the one you know, with the same amount of stages, bands and the same audience number. Our new neighbors will be Tøyen public bath, The Munch Museum and Oslo Botanical Gardens. At the moment, we are looking into the details and booking for the best Øya festival ever.
The ticket sale for next year’s festival has just started. Week passes, which include the Club Day (Tue 5th of August) and four days in Tøyenparken, has in recent years sold out by the end of February.
Ten acts are already confirmed for next year’s festival. A few more will be announced before Christmas. These ten names will give you a good idea about how varied the line-up will be.
