Description

Annual multicultural festival at Rådhusplassen (City Hall Square).
Oslo Mela is one of the largest events of its kind outside the Asian subcontinent.

Mela means "meeting point", and has roots thousands of years back in South Asia. In its modern form Mela is a festival based on artistic and cultural expressions, food and stalls with information and goods of all kinds. The festival is popular with all age groups.

This year's Mela Festival is begining to take shape, and the headliner is Wyclef Jean.

Wyclef Jean's solo career had a tremendous success and topped the lists worldwide with songs like 911 with Mary J. Blige, Perfect Gentleman, Gone, November and Party to Damascus. Wyclef has performed with Carlos Santana and Avicii on the new World Cup song.
