Kristiansand 1 – 3 September
continues the festival's genre-blind quality focus: From British Three Trapped
Tigers' high energy progressive rock, to the melodic, seventies-inspired
wonders of last year's Norwegian pop sensation Band of Gold. From
well-known names for the Punkt audience like Stian Westerhus and Bugge
Wesseltoft's New Conception of Jazz, who celebrate their 20th anniversary this
year, to new acquaintances Erlend Apneseth Trio and pianist Ingfrid Breie
There will also be a focus on the legendary German label ECM: Founder and producer Manfred Eicher visits us to talk about the label, and Punkt features the release concert for one of ECM’s main releases this year: the album "Atmosphères" by the new constellation Tigran Hamasyan / Arve Henriksen / Eivind Aarset / Jan Bang.
The audiovisual aspect has always been important at Punkt. This year's co-operation with Kristiansand Kunsthall is an exhibition by the profiled light and video artist HC Gilje.
As always, all concerts will be remixed live. Remixers and seminar holders will be announced later.
