“We know that you have been looking forward to Øya 2021. We have (been looking forward to it) too. Therefore, it is difficult to say that we have now made the decision not to arrange a festival this year.
“In recent months, we have held on to the hope that it would be possible to implement (the festival), but we now see that it would not work,” Tonje Kaada, general manager of the festival, wrote in the press release.
Planning for next year
This year’s Øya Festival should have been held on August 10-14 in the Tøyen Park. However, the organizers are already in the process of planning next year’s festival.
“Now, we will put all the focus and all our efforts on the 2022 edition. The goal is to give you the very best version of the Øya Festival ever,” the festival team wrote.
