Bysommer: Ævestaden


Hear the Swedish-Norwegian trio play at SALT!

Ævestaden are long chorales, modern lyrics, pop songs and a sound that is not afraid of the clear, dirty, electronic or traditional.

The Swedish-Norwegian trio debuted with the album Ingen mere gråter at Heilo, Grappa in 2021. For this album, they won the Folkelarmprisen in the open category the same year. Seamlessly blending the traditional and the modern, the group quickly earned a place on the folk music scene - and over time their attention has expanded.

Their varied instrument combinations, with lyres, fiddle, kantele, vocals, harmonica and electronics, open up a unique soundscape as timeless harmonies and layers of minimalist motifs create an open and atmospheric world.

Ævestaden has performed at By:Larm, Førdefestivalen, VillVillVest, Bergen International Festival, Festspillene i Nord-Norge, BLÅ, John Dee and at Midgardsblot. In addition to Norway and Sweden, they have also played in Poland, France, Scotland, England, Germany, Denmark and Belgium. They have played support for Valkyrien Allstars, Sara Parkman and Ingrid Olava.

Throughout July, you are invited to experience some of Norways best and most prominent artists in idyllic surroundings at the dock. Cultural venue SALT has created the concert series Bysommer (which loosely translates to “Summer in the city”) to celebrate the city of Oslo and bring positive energy to the hot summer nights.

At SALT, you will also find a large outdoor serving with sun all night, food stalls and bars – and several saunas! During the weekends, there are also DJs playing at the outdoor serving. Enjoy good music, food, drinks and the spectacular view of the Oslo fjord and Opera House as the sun sets!
