Cosmopolite – Great world music venue

Cosmopolite scene is one of the main venues for world music and jazz in Oslo. The venue has two stages, the large Cosmopolite, and the more intimate Belleville. The venue is situated at Torshov, in the historical building Kulturslottet Soria Moria. It is somewhat away from the town centre, but easily accessible by trams #11, 12 and 13.

Cosmopolite host concerts several times a week, and they have an exciting program. I have attended concerts here to dream away to places I visited before, and the greatest concert was Tinariwen, which reminded me of my visit to the Festival au Desert in Timbuktu.

In this area you will also find restaurants and bars, so you can either dine before the concert, or go for a drink after. If you love pizza, pass by Lofthus Samvirkelag while you are in the area.

Tickets for the concerts can be booked through ticketservice (link in the program), or you can buy them at the door at Cosmopolite the day of the concert.
