The 1st of October marked the start of Ultima – Oslo Contemporary Music Festival 2008 one of the cultural highlights of the autumn season in Norway.
The Ultima festival for contemporary music is one of the cultural highlights of the autumn season in Norway. This is due to the impressive standard the event has reached, both musically and as vital forum for debate and conceptualization. This elevated status is a product of focused collaboration between eighteen central institutions of Norwegian music; a joint undertaking that has developed over the course of fifteen years. Ultima’s significance has been steadily rising, and today the event appears as a major cultural happening, viewed as important to Norwegian contemporary art in general.
