This video gives a concise introduction to the Punkt experience. If you wish to explain Punkt to a friend, probably this will help!

Punkt – at the core of a natural network

Punkt is a music festival in the city of Kristiansand in the south of Norway. The festival concept is centered around the concept Live Remix. This concept is an extension of how the curators of the festival, Jan Bang and Erik Honoré, have worked with a range of Nordic and international musicians; with live sampling and live electronics, and as record producers and remixers. Many prominent musicians and guest curators have contributed to the Punkt project, including Brian Eno, David Sylvian and John Paul Jones. In addition to the mothership festival in Kristiansand, Punkt events have been arranged in London, Paris, Tallinn, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Mannheim and other European cities, and more offspring events are planned.

Live Remix

All concerts at Punkt are remixed live, and the audience may listen to the remixes immediately after each concert. In many cases, the remixers also invite musicians to interact with the remixes, making them a platform for innovation and improvisation.

Sound and Vision

Good sound and great design and lighting has always been one of Punkt`s trademarks. We use the best obtainable professionals within their respective fields.
