Welcome to Sommerøya 2010
The festival is held at Langøyene right outside Oslo. For three whole days there will be a strict focus on dancing, swimming and those oh' so sweet summer nights. Fantastic DJ's and a selection of Norwegian artists will ensure steaming hot rhythms' by the seashore and pump up the jam inside the Circus tent.
The fun starts early down by the Beach stage and will keep bringing it until dark. In the Circus tent you will find electronic bands and live shows throughout the day. At night it transforms into an indoor club with lights and sound until the wee morning hours. Food, bars, art and culture is a part of the package.
Did we mention that there is a huuuuge camping site for tents (and parties) at your disposal for all three days?
How to get there?
Ferry 94 from Vippetangen (right next to Oslo City Hall) is in traffic to and from Langøya every hour at regular price during daytime. In addition, a 24/7 "Sommerøya" ferry has been arranged, leaving every half hour, to and from Oslo city centre.
If you arrive by boat, festival goers can be dropped off at our "Kiss & Goodbye" pier, north of the island. If you wish to keep the boat during the festival, you can leave it on "sway", meaning only with an anchor/grapnel about 50 meters off shore.
