Punkt 07 will be arranged in Kristiansand, Norway on August 29 - September 1. The festival, now in its third year, combines the performances of some of the world's most interesting musicians with the concept of Live Remix (instant deconstruction/remixing) of the concerts, which the audience may experience immediately after each concert. BBC Music Magazine wrote: “Norway has done it again! My award for this year's most innovative festival goes to Punkt."

Jon Hassell returns to Punkt, and so do Nils Petter Molvr, Arve Henriksen, Eivind Aarset, J. Peter Schwalm, Bugge Wesseltoft and Sidsel Endresen. Among the many new names this year are David Toop, Kammerflimmer Kollektief, Jaki Liebezeit & Burnt Friedman, Hans Appelqvist, Huntsville, Quercus (June Tabor, Iain Ballamy, Huw Warren), Sweet Billy Pilgrim, Solveig Slettahjell Slow Motion Quintet, Robin Guthrie, Trio Mediaeval, Russell Mills/Undark, Joanna MacGregor, Michiyo Yagi, Wallumrd/Charles/Grydeland/Zach, Svalastog, Nils Chr. Moe-Repstad, Scanner and David Rothenberg.

Punkt 07 will consist of 13 main stage concerts, 13 Live Remixes, 14 commissioned works (for Punkt Kunst, a collaboration with the Srlandet Art Museum) and a lecture series with several of the world's greatest capacities on the music forms represented at the festival.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
