21:30 - Aurora Aksnes
By just listening to Aurora Aksnes’ music, you’ll see that there are no hints of her being only seventeen years old. The songs have the qualities of a much older and a more established artist. Blending a singer/songwriter-style of music with elements of electronic music gives it an interesting edge.
22:15 - Vilde Tuv
After releasing the critically acclaimed singles “Mine Armer” and “Cellevevet” Vilde Tuv has established herself as one of the most promising newcomers from Bergen. Tuv creates lo-fi songs which feels both immediate and sincere, which all have the quality of striking a chord in the listener.
23:00 - Hemmelig Overraskelse
24:45 - Soulbeast
Despite not having been around for more than a couple of months Soulbeast have already shared the stage with Haim and made a reputation of themselves as energetic performers.
DJ: Bob Stanley (UK/Saint Etienne)
Not only an accomplished musician, but also an accomplished music writer. For 20 years Bob Stanley has been making hits with the pop-group saint etienne and recently wrote the definitive guide to pop music: “Yeah Yeah Yeah: The Story of Modern Pop”.

A Q&A session with ledgendary Saint Etienne member and rock journalist Bob Stanley, at Østre. In cooperation with Eno and Brak.
22:30 - Línt
Lint plays a form of post-rock with a hint of electronics, in a genre where many bands have started to stick to a formula of predictable crescendos contrasted with “predictable” and tender guitar melodies. Meanwhile, Lint stands out. Their music is characterized by a tasteful execution which manages to keep you mesmerized.
23:15 - The Big Almost
This trio makes an eclectic mix of beautiful guitar lines and large dreamy synthscapes rooted in strong melodies and great drum breaks. Releasing their latest album these days, and championed by ENO amongst others.
00:00 - Baertur
A combination of several members of prominent bands from Bergen join forces to bring you some “Next level music made by previous level people!”. It’s catchy, it’s weird, and most importantly, it’s FUN.
00:45 - Action the Man
Our favourite “outsider”-rapper from Bergen just released a new EP with more notes from the underground.
DJ: Utmark Lydsystem / DJ Henrik Svanevik
Saturday feb 22nd
23:00 - folkE
Filtering the rich musical heritage of norwegian folk music through modern electronic music makes folkE a unique band. Appropriately Norwegian fiddle music is strongly rooted in dance, and thats what folkE wants you to do, put on your dancing shoes.
23:45 - Advanced Language
Playing their first live gig in almost two years this quirky pop-group will charm you with their funny and often profound lyrics.
