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: All main stage concerts are immediately remixed by musicians/producers on another stage, where the audience can experience an interpretation/extension of the concert they just attended.

The Live Remix 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 for artists like David Sylvian, Arve Henriksen and Nils Petter Molvær, in addition to their own recording projects.

Many prominent musicians and guest curators have contributed to the Punkt project, including Laurie Anderson, 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, Prague, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Mannheim and other European cities, and more offspring events are planned.
