Only Connect Festival Of Sound

Since 2005 nyMusikk has organized an annual festival of adventurous music. The festival has gone under the names Happy Days and Grønland Kammermusikkfestival (Grønland Chamber Music Festival). In 2012, the festival was named Only Connect Festival Of Sound. With an ambitious international programming combined with the best the local scene can offer, Only Connect urges to make new connections between musical landscapes, art forms, musicians and composers.
