UKEN is the second largest cultural festival on the West coast of Norway. In the course of 17 days you can experience concerts, cabaret, shows, seminars, world record attempt, childrens day and much more.
The main event during the festival is UKErevyen (a cabaret), which has won the national championships in the category studet-cabaret several times. UKENs cabaret-tradition has roots dating back to 1947, and many famous comedians began their stage career here. Concerts are also an important part of the UKEN, and artists who have visited the festival include 50 Cent, The White Stripes, Jason Mraz and The Cardigans.
UKEN is run entirely by volunteer students, from top to bottom, and we are currently over 1000 volunteers working to give you the best festival possible. Although UKEN is organized by students, it is a festival open for everyone!
UKEN 12 TAKES PLACE BETWEEN 8th and 25th of MARCH. WELCOME!
