Programme: Festivalgata // Thursday
In collaboration with Quality Hotel Grand, we organize free concerts every day, all day in Festivalgata. In addition their will be DJs out in the late night hours. Come, join and feel the good festival atmosphere!
CANCELED: Shan // 12:00
The profound songwriting with tight grooves and progressive melodies gives the familial expression of Shan. Their debutalbum «Confessions» is a conceptalbum which takes the listener through a journey of the youth’s mind. The music is connected to each of the individuals musicality and personality. The songs are timeless and unpredictable, with strong dynamical events, and the musical universe and energy Shan creates on the stage is impossible to not be drawn into.
Bøttehuene // 13:30
5 young people from Kongsberg Kulturskole are ready for the Kongsberg Jazzfestival. Throughout the year they participate at UngJam at Musikkhuset Energimølla. The music ranges from pop, funk, rock and some jazz.
Kongsberg Storband // 15:00
The band will give you a varied menu of sounds and rhythms. We move through high energy funk and rock to soft ballads – from Latin America to Africa. With an age span from 17 to 70+, young talents continue to flower among grey-haired veterans from our local jazz society. We love that our incubator still works!
Gamekingz // 16:30
Gamekingz is a hip hop / rap group from Drammen and Oslo. The trio started making music together in 2011, and has for a long time been local favorites in their home towns. You can expect energetic creations with a powerful sound when they guest Kongsberg Jazzfestival this year.
Pauline Skoglund-Voss // 18:00
Paulin Voss Band plays pop music with influences from both jazz and classical music. Paulin’s velvety vocals are blended with the sound of cello, double bass, piano and drums – and not to forget the beautiful vocal harmonies of the band’s members.
Vacation Mode // 19:30
Vacation Mode is about creating that holiday feeling and spreading joy. We deliver a music mash-up of chill rhythms, funky beats and hitting lyrics. We call our music funky indie-rock and our sound is influenced by funk, rock, blues, jazz, soul, reggea and samba. We’ll give you a break from the weekday and deliver a sense of vacation, either on one of our shows or at home.
DJ Ole K // 21:00
Ole K has been a DJ around Norway since the late nineties! He plays a blissful mix of soul, funk, yacht rock, disco and pop. Not too strange, not too stressful, but very dance-friendly.
