Marked for Musikk is Norway’s largest annual showcase event where professional artists present concerts aimed at young audiences (0-18 years). Concert organisers can in the space of three days watch, assess and book concerts well suited for their young audiences. The intension behind the event is that more young audiences will experience high quality concerts by giving bookers from culture houses, festivals, libraries and The Cultural Schoolbag efficient access to such concerts.
Marked for Musikk is also a significant arena for professionals and artists to exchange knowledge and expand their networks.
Marked for Musikk is a collaboration between Vestfold & Telemark County Council and Larvik Municipality, with the support from Kulturtanken – Arts for Young Audiences Norway.
The first event took place in 2010 and in 2020 Marked for Musikk will host YAMsession for the second time. YAMsession – Young Audience Music (YAM) Session – is a European event for concert showcases, talks, networking, and more.
Date for this year’s event: 20-22 October
