Ultima festival 2018: 

nyMusikk 80th Anniversary

Founded by Pauline Hall in 1938, nyMusikk has supported new composers and worked to inform the public about the ever changing forms of contemporary music.

We celebrate 80 years of promoting contemporary sounds with a city tour of Oslo venues that doubles up as a round trip of cutting edge modern music.
