All good things must come to an end! Since 1999 Oslo’s ElektroStat (formerly known also as Oslo Synthfestival) has been an active promotor and purveyor of great electronic music in the shape of small bands, big bands, small bands becoming big bands. This year’s ElektroStat will be the 17th running, taking place on November 06-07 2015, and unfortunately also the very last one. Yes, that’s right, ElektroStat has run its course and will be no more after this year’s edition.
But they will end in beauty as this year’s line up holds live performances from Dive, Leæther Strip, Tarmvred, Deutsche Bank, Schnodig, Distortion Six and Lurendrei.
Side-Line has been at the festival at several occasions in the past few years and it’s one of the few festivals where it was good fun being at with shows from Recoil, Kant Kino, Karin Park, Essence Of Mind, Marsheaux and many many more.
It’s highly recommended to already book your hotel if you plan to go as hotels tend to be rapidly booked around that period in Oslo. You can find a list of hotels available during this period right here. Make sure to choose a prolonged stay as Oslo has many exquisite corners to offer that will make your stay even more enjoyable.
We’d like to take the opportunity to thank the team behind ElektroStat for the good collaboration over the past years and for the hospitality we enjoyed during our stays in Oslo. En stor kyss og vi vil se hverandre ganske snart !
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
