2018 must be the perfect summer to launch the first edition of the Norwegian beach festival Kadetten.

This is a brand new festival set to appear on the Norwegian music scene. Kadetten will be held at Kadettangen, in Sandvika, just 15 minutes outside Oslo. The festival takes place on the 3rd and 4th of July, and Disharmoni will be there to review the first edition for you.
The Festival features mainly pop acts, and seems to be aimed at a younger audience. With American and Norwegian mainstream EDM and Hip Hop acts featuring heavily in the lineup. In its launch year, Kadetten has managed to bring some big current acts, such as Marshmello, Khalid, Ty Dolla $ign, Anderson Paak and Tyler, The Creator.
The people behind the Kadetten, festival veterans Toffen Gunnufsen and Svein Bjørge, previously organisers of festivals such as the Quart Festival and the Hove Festival, are pushing for a cool and young summer festival.
With an amazing location on a popular beach, and a strong international lineup Kadetten is well placed to take an important place on the national festival scene, and to perhaps one day be reminiscent of the epic Kalvøyafestivalen. Beach, party and music, we are already excited to taste the waters for Kadetten Music Festival 2018.
