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 this audience. The intention behind the event is that more young audiences will experience high quality concerts by giving bookers from culture houses, festivals and The Cultural Schoolbag (programme for concerts/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 event is a collaboration between Vestfold and Telemark County Council, Larvik Municipality and Kulturtanken (Arts for Young Audiences Norway) with the first event taking place in 2010.
In 2016 and 2021 Marked for Musikk was host to YAMsession (Young Audiences Music Session), which is a part of Jeunesses Musicales’ activities and offers concert showcases, talks, networking, and more for professional colleagues across Europe.
The dates for the 2023 event are 24-26 October.
