UKA is the biggest and longest running studentdriven culturalfestival in Norway. It’s been arranged every other fall since 1917, with the exception of the waryears 1941 and 1943. In 2021 UKA takes place between the 7rd and 31th of October.
UKA has a purpose of delivering the financial expectations of Samfundet through great experiences and a good reputation. Both UKA and Samfundet are run by volunteering students.
The UKErevy is perhaps the most important event of the festival. Each UKErevy has a unique name, which is also carried by its respective UKE. The name is kept secret until the official opening of the festival.
In addition to the revy there are two smaller additional intimate performances: The Nightshow, which has served up crime and intrigue for the audience since the 1990s, and the second is the children’s theater.
The weekends during UKA are special. You’ll find students, old and current, roaming the halls of Samfundet dressed in their finest attire.
