ALL EARS 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. ALL EARS is a non-profit festival by music enthusiasts for music enthusiasts, with bass players Christian Meaas Svendsen and Guro Skumsnes Moe currently in charge.
ALL EARS is constantly on the lookout for new acts from all over the world, with the program being curated by the festival. It's important to note that the festival does not accept booking requests.
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 ALL EARS a festival which adapts to new challenges without making artistic compromises.
