We’re definitely not professional photographers, but we do know how to have a good time at Øya. These are some of the pics we took last week.

Thanks again to Øya Festival for the amazing festival and partnership in Øya International and to Phonofile for hosting the Mixed Zone with us. All pics by Erlend Buflaten and Pål Dimmen.

We startes the week with a meet & greet with the Øya International participants and Norwegian industry at Visit Oslo with food from Salma and drinks from Arcus.

On Wednesday, Thea Hjelmeland performed in Holmekollen Ski Jump with the best view of Oslo behind her.

Meanwhile, the delagetes had speed meeting sessions at the Munch Museum.

Phonofile surprised us with synchronzised swimmers Wednesday afternoon!

We saw concerts as well. Bendik killed it on the main stage!
