From 1.1.2018 there’s a new major concert promoter in Norway when the German giant FKP Scorpio open their Oslo based Norway office.
FKP Scorpio Norge will be led by Torgeir Gullaksen, who started Norwegian indie promoter Goldstar 12 years ago and has been with the company since. All Goldstar employees will follow Gullaksen to Scorpio.
In Goldstar’s 12 year they put on shows with acts as Queens of the Stone Age, Bon Iver, The XX, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Sigur Ros. As FKP Scorpio Norway opens, Goldstar will shut their doors for good.
In a press release, Torgeir Gullaksen they’re happy to have a found a European partner with the same values as Goldstar.
– For years Goldstar have put on quality concerts around Norway, but we are increasingly aware how difficult it is to be a small, independent player. We are thrilled to be able to continue doing what we do best, with a big European promoter who shares our values.
– The big winner is of course the ones who love live music, Gullaksen adds.
Norway will be FKP Scorpio’s 6th office. They already have offices in Austria, Sweden, The Netherlands, Finland and Germany.
