On these pages we present some of the performers and others taking part in this year's festival at the different venues. You will find them if you scroll on drop-down list - in alphabetical order. Some of the performers are only presented in Norwegian (N).
Hamardomen - the glass house built to protect the Old Cathedral Ruins - is to be found at the Hedmark Museum (Domkirkeodden). The ruins are of a cathedral constructed in the 1150s and partially destroyed in 1567. The four grand arches that remain are now sheltered under a soaring triangle of glass and steel, designed by the Norwegian architect, Kjell Lund. The building is now often used as a venue for weddings and for concerts - the acoustics are amazing, and the surroundings equally so. The outdoor museum will be used on Sunday for our spectacular Jubilee Concert - which we truly believe will be amazing!
The Kirsten Flagstad Museum, next to the "new" Cathedral in the city centre, will be home to several talks and films during the Festival, as well as being the venue for the official opening. Their website is www.kirsten-flagstad.no.
The Hamar Art Association is opposite the Flagstad Museum - it will be showing art by Unni Askeland during the Festival.
Hamar Cathedral is also used for concerts. This Cathedral was built in 1866 and is to be found in the centre of the city.
The Festival is using several small venues for concerts: Gregers is a pub in the centre of the city (near the main post office and Hedmark University College) and also to be found in the city centre, is Sparebank1 Hedmark.
Three of the events will take place in Oslo: Stars of Tomorrow, a debate and a book launch.
