NOVA Spektrum has a proud history when it comes to live concerts. Almost 60 years ago, we were the venue for one of the first and most legendary concerts in Norway, when we hosted The Rolling Stones.​

Founded more than 100 years ago, we are today known for trade fairs, exhibitions, conventions, conferences and banquets. This means that organizing large events is our core business.​

NOVA Spektrum is one of the most diverse events spaces in the Oslo region, and the most accessible. By offering a portfolio of scenes with unique characteristics, we believe we can add something special to the arena landscape in the Oslo.​
