Cloud Exit – Up and coming Electronic Music talents from Northern Norway
One of Insomnia’s most important goals has been to create space for new artists and give them the opportunity to experiment and develop their skills. To achieve this, we have established the Cloud Exit talent program with support from SNN Samfunnsløftet and Talent Norway to identify and develop new regional talent within electronic music and related arts scenes.
The program consists of three parts; a mentorship with an established Norwegian musician, an educational program through various workshops and performance experience.
Insomnia will pair the talent up with a more established musician that will guide, teach and challenge the talent in a way that will contribute positively to their career. Insomnia will also arrange a series of workshops that will be designed for the artists participating in the project. All the talents will perform at Insomnia festival.
In 2022 the talents are; nonne - a Tromsø based psychedelic rock duo consisting of Gustav Eidsvik and Erlend Skotnes, Elfrida aka Grete Johanne Torvholm, and classical pianist and organ conductor Bjørk Eide from Bodø, under the stage name Kinsella.

Blade Runar, Maud, Palmi, Pijar, Lp Martin, Alnes, Ernst Malo, Svani, Fredrik E, Andrea Conradsen, BANAAN, Third Attempt, Juicy Máihlái, Runther, Tokyo Twins
