The Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival is Scandinavia’s largest contemporary music festival, and since 1991 it has been a key arena for contemporary music and related art forms in the Nordic region. The festival is organised as a foundation comprising seventeen of the most influential art institutions and organisations in Norway.
The festival takes place during September and is staged at venues all around Oslo. The events are staged both in large, established venues such as the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet, Oslo Concert Hall, and the University of Oslo’s Great Hall as well as in small clubs, shop premises, industrial premises, museums, schools, and outdoors. The Ultima Festival aims to promote artistic distinctiveness, trends, and innovation and to make music of a high artistic standard accessible by everyone.
The festival is supported by the Arts Council Norway and Oslo City Council.
His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon is the patron of Ultima.
