Oslo Caribbean Feeling 2020

Oslo Caribbean Feeling 2020 IS ON!

Dates: 24-25 Oct 2020

VENUE: Riksscenen, Schous Kulturbryggeri, Trondheimsveien 2, Oslo

We could not be happier!!! After more than 6 months of very limited social and cultural life, we are thrilled that Oslo Caribbean Feeling is on, and getting closer: October 24th-25th!!!

We will have minimum 30 varied workshops, we will enjoy a salsa concert with the 11 piece orchestra SON CANDELA Saturday evening, present several dance shows on stage, and we will give you some NEW sessions to the festival Sunday evening.

Together with our venue Riksscenen, we will be following the Covid-19 guidelines closely, and prepare the festival program accordingly. But, less people will be allowed into the workshop rooms, and the workshops will be mainly non-partnerwork classes. 

This means that there is ONLY 90 OCF 2020 FESTIVAL PASSES AVAILABLE 
(the rest of the spaces are reserved for artists and crew)

If the Covid-19 restrictions change before the festival, we will adapt the program to what is possible in the matter of social dancing. But at this moment, we are preparing the festival according to current regulations, meaning that what we can offer as festival program, will AT LEAST contain this:

  • Parallel workshops 3-4 different rooms during two full days, lead by some of our finest dance teachers in Norway
  • Salsa concert with 11 piece orchestra Son Candela Saturday night, djs playing great tunes before and after
    PD! The Son Candela concert included in the festival pass, is the late night concert starting 22:00 (doors opening 21:00).
    (There will also be an early evening concert from 19:00 sold as just concert for audience outside the festival.
    This way more people have the opportunity to see the Son Candela concert :D )
  • Dance shows representing teachers, dance schools, & some independent groups
  • Interesting conference on musical roots and influences with contributing dancers and musicians on stage
  • Live debate on a difficult, but extremely important topic: How to build a healthy and safe environment in the social dance scene.
  • A very special Cinema night to conclude the festival, with the new, artistic dance film "That voudou that we do"


The Oslo Caribbean Feeling festival is aiming to showcase and give work opportunities to all the highly competent artists we have in Norway within the latin, caribbean and african dance genders.
