Haddy N’jie is to present the 90-minute long ceremony on Sunday 21 August from 3pm in Oslo Spektrum, which also includes singer-songwriter Susanne Sundfør, rap group Karpe Diem, and pianist Leif Ove Andsnes. The event is part of the capital’s International Film Festival.

Those invited to the celebration include survivors, the Royal Family, relief workers and others who have contributed to helping out with the recovery from the disasters.

“On 22 July, we, like everyone else in Norway and the rest of the world, were shaken to the soul by these actions of cruelty and violent provocation against everything we stand for. We are also very proud to belong to a small country where people, politicians and the royal family worked together and showed solidarity in the face of such tragedy, and we are grateful to be asked to participate in the memorial ceremony.”

“We do this to honor those who have been torn away, to show appreciation to everyone who made an effort to help on July 22, and to express our sympathy to the survivors who now are left in sorrow,” Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen, and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy and say in a press statement.

Live performances will be broadcasted NRK1 and NRK.no.
