TV and smiles at the Øya Festival / Entertainment / The Foreigner

TV and smiles at the Øya Festival. This year’s Øya Festival is now firmly underway. The Foreigner went out to check the Øya Festival atmosphere and talk to a couple of bands. “We’re two DJs: Kristen Torhilsen & Dennis Johansson from Fredrikstad. We play avant electro and give concerts in many places in Norway, of course most of the time in pubs. It`s just a fantastic feeling when you see that people really have fun when you play and they’re keen on hearing your mixed sounds. We’ve also started playing abroad. We played in Berlin, however the dream is France. Our CD came out in February this year, and right now we`re working on a new one.  And what else can we add? Our goal is to give people a smile.”Koppen

“We play folk, inspired by slapstick humor and blues. Our inspiration comes from TV and our music reminds you of when you change the channels on the telly. Quite often, we play in similar places like this one. Last time, we played in Berlin and we`re going to give a gig in London.

We hope we give the audience lots of positive energy. Anyway, in our mind the Øya Festival is great, and it’s so cool to be part of this huge music event in Oslo.”
