Special Callsign, LM100UKA

 

In September and October, we will be running the special callsign LM100UKA to celebrate the 100-year aniversary of the UKA-festival.

The UKA festival is a festival that has been arranged by students at the Student Society of Trondheim once every second autumn since 1917 (except for the war years of 1941 and 1943). The festival originally grew out of a student revue at the student society, in the early days lasting a week hence the name (“uka” translates to “the week”). The revue is still an integral part of the festival to this day, but the festival has grown to last for three weeks and now includes multiple concerts and various social arrangements.

This year, artists who will be performing at the festival includes Highasakite and Cashmere Cat. To get more information about the festival, please check out https://uka.no/ (Norwegian).
