Øya 2011

With a stellar line-up, sold-out shows, ok weather and hordes of visibly pleased festival-goers, last week’s Øya Festival went down as a repeat of the success story that the event has become.

True to form, August’s Øya Festival in Oslo went down in the history books as yet another successfully arranged event with each night being completely sold-out, impeccable organization, decent weather and a highly satisfied crowd.

This week sees the first international reviews of the eco-friendly festival trickling in, here’s a round-up of the main articles collected so far:
