Best of Trondheim Calling: Pom Poko

I attended Trondheim Calling this weekend and saw some very exciting acts. My favourite was Pom Poko. Energetic and playful, with a charismatic lead singer and catching tunes. They are also nominated for the final of Urørt, a music competition for new artists and bands which is hosted by NRK. You’ll probably get the chance to see this band in Norway during the festival summer. 

You should definitely check out Rohey as well. They are a quartet assembled around the extremely talented lead singer Rohey Taalah and will release their first album this year. 

Rohey played a great gig at Olavshallen during Trondheim Calling and I am looking forward to hearing more music from this funky and soulful ensemble. 

If you are in to visual effects, take a note of Drøm. 

They use video art as a backdrop for their electronica act and I found it to be a great time. You are invited in to a landscape where sound and video makes the time stop.

Other honourable mentions from the gigs I saw: Emma & The Diamond Hearts and Amanda Tenfjord are both young and exciting talents I look forward to hearing more from. 

Pstereo Festival 2016

The Pstereo Festival celebrated their 10th anniversary on August 18-20 2016. As usual one stops to relish the beautiful surroundings of the festival area, and also get to see great music acts. Sigur Rós, Highasakite, Veronica Maggio, Deafhaven, Beach Slang, Snøskred, Bendik and Dumdum Boys were among the highlights.

These were moments I chose to memorize from this year’s festival – shot with my compact camera. Click on the images if you want to enlarge them.

Panorama of Pstereo Festival

It’s time for the annual Pstereo Festival in Trondheim, this year with Sigur Rós, Veronica Maggio, Highasakite and Dumdum Boys as headliners. Here’s a post on last years favourites. 

Among the reasons why you should check out this festival is its beautiful surroundings. Located at Marinen, between Nidarosdomen and Nidelven, you have an amazing view of Trondheim.

I tried to catch a couple of panorama views yesterday.

Pstereo Festival 2015

The Pstereo Festival is a music festival that takes place in the middle of Trondheim once every August. The festival area is placed on the recreation area Marinen between Nidelva, the city’s blue vein, and our famous cathedral Nidarosdomen and consequently offers striking visual surroundings. 

The festival tries to combine the classic headliner profile with exciting up-and-comers and I end up each year thinking that some of the best concerts were by bands or artists I didn’t know of beforehand. 

At the 2015 edition, my personal favorites were Aurora, Formation, La Roux and Spidergawd.
