“The last few by:Larm festivals have been great successes, but one of our biggest concerns for the music industry in general is promoting diversity – both on and off stage,” says by:Larm’s Erik Egenes.
“We are part of the international Keychange pledge, aiming for a 50/50 gender balance on our artiste programme by 2022.”
by:Larm has been held annually at different locations in since 1998 and in Oslo since 2008. The festival focuses on hip-hop, pop, and underground electronica.
