Trondheim Calling has over the years grown to become one of the largest showcase festivals and music conferences in Norway. The festival drew an audience of over 6,000 this year, and aspires to present and discuss new Norwegian music. The festival is expanding both in time and space, and the concert and conference programs are packed from Thursday on.
– Trondheim Calling was started as a regional meetingpoint, but has developed as a festival and conference with a national reach and interest. The number of conference participants increased by more than 30% this year, ending on more than 1000 attendees from all across Norway and Europe, says Thomas Ryjord, festival director.
– There is limited how many band the audience can check out pr night and how much conference program we can put into pr day, so a natural step in our growth now is to spread out on one extra day, starting the conference and festival allready on Thursday.
Trondheim Calling will also occupy new urban spaces. In addition to the stages at Solsiden and Brattøra, will Trondheim’s biggest conservatory be created inside Olavshallen. There will be a pop-up “festival-city” where the audience is welcome to enjoy food and drinks while socializing with other festival-goers.
Early-Bird festival passes will be on sale this Friday!
