Norway has 4 completely different showcase festivals, and Trondheim Calling is the second longest working of those. This yr was their tenth anniversary. A complete of 82 bands/artists with all collectively 350 musicians and artists plus 900 delegates from the Norwegian and worldwide music enterprise had been gathered for 3 days of live shows, seminars and networking.

In 1998 by:Larm began because the Norwegian reply to SXSW and different showcase festivals. The primary years the pageant alternated between completely different cities in Norway, however after by:Larm determined to remain completely in Oslo, and in addition modified their perspective to be extra Nordic and worldwide, the necessity got here for a brand new pageant, and Trondheim Calling was began in 2011. Since then we’ve bought two extra regional showcase festivals, Sørveiv in Kristiansand and Wild Wild West in Bergen.

This yr’s Trondheim Calling was my fifth, and I’ve seen the pageant evolve to a really skilled and in addition fascinating pageant. The convention half is excellent, with fascinating, and in addition helpful themes for the struggling musicians. The pageant half mixes up and coming artists and bands with some extra established bands. On this approach the live shows attracts the native followers along with the delegates so the bands get to play for an enthusiastic crowd.

At this yr’s Trondheim Calling I noticed ten artists and bands, and listed here are images of them.
