Crown Prince Haakon and Minister of Culture Trine Skei Grande (V) visited the Nordic region’s largest contemporary music festival – Ultima – in Oslo on Thursday evening.

The festival opened on Thursday and lasts through September 21st. What the audience can look forward to is a sonic scene in honor of Gustav Vigeland’s ghost, 150 years after the artist’s birth.

It serves Carl Michael von Hausswolff and Michael Esposito in the Vigeland Museum on Friday. The performance is part of Oslo’s cultural night, and therefore there is free admission.

Other elements of the diverse program are KORK’s concert with folk musicians Gjermund Larsen, Knut Aastad Bråten and Ole Aastad Bråten.

Jennifer Walshe and Timothy Morton have joined forces in the play “Time Time Time”, which explores different aspects of time and parallel universes.

The festival is supported by the Cultural Council and the City of Oslo. Ultima is a foundation of which 17 professional cultural institutions and organizations are members.

The festival occurs in September every year and takes place in several arenas all over Oslo. The events take place in both large established arenas such as The Norwegian Opera & Ballet, Oslo Concert Hall and the University’s auditorium, as well as in small clubs, store rooms, industrial premises, museums, schools and outdoors.
