Nearly 50 international journalists visited Øya Festival this August. This is what they had to say.

Danish daily Berlingske Tidende names Øya “a first class festival” and asks why there no similar festivals in Copenhagen

Sasha Geffen from US site Consequence of Sound has written a Øya Festival travel diary form her five days in Oslo.

British Gigwise has published daily summerise from the festival and compiled a list of their 26 favorite acts and things from the festival. Showing some new found love for Susanne Sundfør, Slutface and Emilie Nicolas, to name a few.

Drowned in Sound has published a A-Z review and it starts off pretty good: “A is for ASTONISHING”

Online music and culture magazine The Quietus highlights the festival area with few stages that are close to each other and the diverse line up.

Check out Crack Magazine’s review based on things overheard around the festival. Stating “You’re pretty much guaranteed the line-up will be totally on point” when you visit Øya.

Intro.de puts Øya as one of the neatest, greenest and friendliest festivals in the world.

Dutch magazine Subbacultcha share their pictures from the days they were in Oslo. From zip lining down Holmenkollen Ski Jump to a banana on a toilet seat.
