Sirkus Agio
Sirkus Agio

Circus Agio presents Kristian: an avid juggler who began his juggling career when he was ten years old. Since then, he has had over 250 shows and offered smiles and laughter for both children and adults of all ages. There will be juggling with balls, cones and rings, as well as other entertainment and music - and if you are extra lucky, you can join the stage!

Strindens Promenade Orchester
Strindens Promenade Orchester

Strindens Promenade Orchester has its origins in the Studentersamfundet, and plays primarily dixieland jazz, but also music in almost all genres. They are a traditional student orchestra - with a career of over 50 years - and today the ensemble has 14 playing members. With their striped uniforms, they are a welcome and well-known part of the jazz city of Trondheim, which spreads joy and entertains both young and old!

Young talents from ISAK

The cultural center ISAK presents young, creative talents from their artist program! In the course of half an hour, music will be performed in various genres, and the whole thing will be led by a lecturer from ISAK's own ranks.


ARABA plays traditional West African music, with driving rhythms and explosive energy that is guaranteed to make you dance. The band consists of two talented vocalists from Nigeria, in addition to a percussionist from Ghana - in collaboration with four musicians from the jazz community in Trondheim.

The young artist, producer and songwriter Nadia Essah tells her life story through groovy and soulful RnB. Her music offers bold lyrics and melodies over sloppy beats, with inspiration from both pop, hip-hop and jazz. Nadia started her career already as a 13-year-old, and after many years of exploring genres and styles, Nadia has now found her own style: expressive, honest and raw.
