HAPPY DAYS GOES NORDIC! NORDIC MUSIC DAYS GOES HAPPY!
-------------------------------
CONTACT - ABOUT - PROGRAMME COMMITTEE

August 19-22 2009 the festival Nordic Music Days will be arranged in Oslo, Norway for the first time since 1992.

Nordic Music Days was established in 1888 already, by composers from the Nordic countries. In 2009, this rich tradition will be coupled with Ny Musikk's less traditional festival Happy Days to become HAPPY NORDIC MUSIC DAYS. Throughout four days in Oslo, musicians and composers from all the Nordic countries will explore the festival theme Nordic Luxury – Contemporary Music in the Welfare State.

What is the position of contemporary music in the Nordic welfare states? Happy Nordic Music Days wants to do a musical investigation of tradition, modernity and identity in the Nordic countries, as well as of the surroundings in which the Nordic contemporary music exists.


The programme will be including the foremost composers and performers from the Nordic countries. Further details will be revealed in the forthcoming months. To know more, please subscribe to our newsletter.

Welcome to a Happy festival!
