Drammen is a town outside of Oslo, and they have made a great effort in using culture actively to make the town a better place to live and visit. One of the things they have done is to revive and old industry area to make – among other things – a very good concert hall, plus an adjoining hotel. Another thing is the festival Working Class Hero. This coming weekend it will be arranged for the 13th time. Here are some pictures of the artists from the 2009 and 2012 festival while we are waiting for this year’s festival to begin.

Sometimes a concert stands out as more than just a performance. Some artists have a stage presence that makes their concers something you remember a long time. Jarle Bernhoft is one of those artists, and last night’s performance at the Working Class Hero festival in Drammen was definitely a concert to remember.
Kaizers Orchestra are one of Norway’s best live bands, and they have played extensively since they started more than 10 years ago. Harmonium, double bass and oil barrels are some of their instruments. Both on CD and also live they are definitely worth listening to. Yesterday night they played the Working Class Hero festival in Drammen.
