Match&Fuse Oslo 2013
“Sub-bass frequencies that could level a small town.”
– Cormac Larkin, Irish Times

This ambitious 3-day event in St. Hanshaugen Park began to carve out the future possibilities for the Match&Fuse Festival. Over 20 bands from 10 countries performed along with ‘band fusions’. There were two flash-mob experiences with buskers creating free-improvised music, along with students from Steiner School playing percussion and chanting, and a procession leading up to the St Hanshaugen Park from Oslo’s town centre. There was also a Match&Fuse Festival Bar set up at the Underwater Pub for the after-party.
