2014 marks the start of a new era for the festival, railroad construction is due to take place at tit's usual home so next year, Øya moves to a new site called Tøyenparken.
The new site is situated between three Oslo landmarks; the international Munch museum, the botanical gardens and Oslo's outdoor amphitheatre park - which includes an outdoor swimming pool, a football field and picturesque walking paths.
Øya will close the main street between all three areas and join the two parks to become one huge area. Despite the new site being bigger than its predecessor, Øya will still have a 60,000 capacity allowing for more space and a comfortable experience.
Øya is the most environmentally friendly festival in the country, boasting 100% ecological food and green ethics.
