9 Best Music Festivals in Oslo & Norway in 2023 (Updated)

Oslo Festivals Norway

Norway is easily one of the most fascinating and beautiful destinations in the entire world!  While hundreds of thousands of people fly into Oslo every year because it’s the gateway for exploring the gorgeous country, there’s actually tons of amazing places to explore in the Oslo Region, as well as amazing music festivals to check-out!  The region’s motto is “where city and nature unite”, and it really captivates everyone who visit with outstanding scenery for adventure seekers and vibrant nightlife / live-music scene.

While Norway is widely known as being a rather expensive country to visit, it’s actually one of the cheapest countries to fly to in Europe!  If you haven’t heard of the crazy deals that Norweigan Air offers between popular U.S Cities and Oslo, then you’re in for a real treat!

For example, you can fly one-way from New York to Oslo for as little as $160 U.S.D one-way! I’d recommend taking advantage of those cheap fares, spending 4-5 days exploring Oslo and the surrounding areas, and hitting up one of these music festivals!
