By:Larm, the largest Nordic music conference.


By:Larm consists of two parts: a festival and a conference. The conference is a meeting place for the Norwegian and foreign music industries. A series of lectures, seminars and debates are held during the day. The festival concerts take place at night and are open to the public. Their main focus is to present artists that are on the verge of success, either in their homelands or internationally.

By:Larm’s main office is in Oslo and is operated by the company Bureau Storm, which is led by Erlend Mogaard-Larsen. In the last ten years by:Larm has been held in Tromsø, Bergen, Stavanger, Kristiansand and Trondheim.
