Happy Days Sound Festival 2008 was intended to be the last in the series. The theme was ‘anger’ and the festival was held at one of the most politically charged arenas in Oslo. In choosing an emotion as the point of departure, the festival was able to present noise music, piano-wrecking and punk -- without any attempt to hide the potentially conflicting situations that may have arisen between the music and passers-by.

 

The design played with the ‘beauty’ of traditional calligraphy contrasted with swearwords like ‘helvete’ (hell) and ‘faen’ (goddamn). The poster was inviting people to ‘Fuck off’.
