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 a this audience. The intension behind the event is that more young audiences will experience high quality concerts by giving bookers from culture houses, festivals and The Cultural Schoolbag (concerts and arts in schools) efficient access to such concerts.
Marked for Musikk is also a significant arena for professionals and artists to exchange knowledge and expand their networks.
The first event took place in 2010 and in 2021 Marked for Musikk will host YAMsession, their European equivalent, for the second time. YAMsession is a part of Jeunesses Musicales’ activities and offers concert showcases, talks, networking, and more for professional colleagues across Europe. See yamsession.org for more information.
Marked for Musikk is a collaboration between Vestfold & Telemark County Council and Larvik Municipality, with the support of Kulturtanken – Arts for Young Audiences Norway.
The dates for this year’s event are 20-22 October.
