allEars is an annual festival for improvised music, held in Oslo, Norway. The goal is to present improvised music and related art forms in all its diversity. allEars is a non-profit festival by music enthusiasts for music enthusiasts, with bass players Christian Meaas Svendsen and Guro Skumsnes Moe currently in charge.
We are constantly on the lookout for new acts from all over the world, with the program being curated by the festival. The festival does NOT accept booking requests, so save your time and ours by NOT sending us an e-mail about booking enquiries.
The festival was started in 2002 by Maja Ratkje and Paal Nilssen-Love. There has been many changes throughout the years. We recognize the work done by our predecessors, but we also acknowledge the changes in our time, and are working towards making allEars a festival which adapts to new challenges without making artistic compromises.
