It will return next summer...

Oslo's superbly laidback Øya Festival returns next summer with appearances from Bon Iver and Bikini Kill.

The festival has committed itself to a 50/50 gender split on its line up, and aims to match this in 2020.

The first announcement is certainly bold, welcoming performances from Justin Vernon's mighty Bon Iver, and Riot Grrrl legends Bikini Kill.

There's a lot more to come, with Øya Festival also upping its game on green-friendly policies.

All cups used on site are reusable, while 75% of on-site waste in 2019 was recycled, leaving the site almost immaculate.

Tickets are on sale now.

Øya Festival runs between August 11th - 15th.
