Spoon @ Oya Festival 2007 (more photos)
Oya Festival

The annual Øya Festival is happening August 11th-15th in Oslo. If you can't get from NYC to Norway, don't worry -- its lineup includes many bands that will or have recently played in the NYC area. That's not to say the fest won't be a great time though. Bands in both Oya and NYC this summer include Wilco, Grizzly Bear, Jenny Lewis, Band of Horses, Dirty Projectors and Vampire Weekend. Beirut, a group that's yet to announce any summer shows beside Pitchfork Fest and a pair of July shows in Toronto and Montreal, will be there as well. Five-day passes for the Norwegian festival are sold out, but one day tickets are still on sale.

We've already discussed the summer "folk" and "blues" fests in Ottawa, Vancouver and Calgary (which is also hosting Sled Island Fest)...well, Edmonton and Winnipeg are planning similarly well-appointed festivals. The lineup for the Winnipeg Folk Fest, which runs from July 8th-12th, includes Neko Case, Okkervil River, Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Iron & Wine, among others. Neko Case and Iron & Wine will also be at the Edmonton Folk Festival, which will happen August 6th-9th. Joining them at the fest will be Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Great Lake Swimmers, Steve Earle and more. Passes for the Winnipeg Fest are still on sale. Individual tickets for Edmonton are available too.
