We have a crew of awesome, dedicated kitchen bitches who make luscious lunches for us on the main event days, all included in the fee. The meals are vegan and scrumptious, made at the legendary Cafe Blitz and served at the venue. We do our best to make sure there is enough food for everyone, but if you are a big eater or don’t like vegan food, please bring additional food for yourself. There are several markets and restaurants in the area if you want additional food or something special. That being said, we often have leftovers from certain dishes, so if you have a lunch box at home, please bring it and help yourself to extras when everyone is done eating. Make sure to sort your own breakfast before arriving at the venue. Dinner is no longer served due to complicated logistics and reduced interest.
For those who want hot meat in their mouths, we will make it available at the BBQ (in addition to vegetarian/vegan food). We charge NOK 400 for the OSC BBQ After-party.
The tap water in Norway is clean and tasty, buying water is expensive and bad for the environment. Please bring your own water bottle!
Getting around Oslo is easy. If you have not been to OSC before, please check out our Oslo SusCon map.
For people traveling to Oslo Airport Gardermoen (OSL/ Oslo Lufthavn), we recommend taking the local train to town. You can also use the airport express train, which is faster but more expensive, or the bus service. People travelling to Torp can take the bus to Oslo Central Station.
To get to Månefisken you may take tram 11, 12, or 13 to the stop Biermanns gate or bus 21 or 33 to Sannergata. For getting to Blitz you may take tram 11 to Holbergs plass or bus 21 to St. Hanshaugen. Or you can walk, Oslo is a great city for walking!
You will find information on public transport at Ruter#. We recommend RuterBillett app for buying tickets, and RuterReise app for planning your travel. The smartest thing to do would be to get a 7 days pass with 1 zone for NOK 285. You can also use this on the local train from the airport, and get a supplementary ticket for NOK 69.
We realize that accommodations in Oslo can be expensive and do our best to find lodging for the working crew and volunteers if necessary. Capacity is very limited, we strongly encourage everyone to sort themselves if they can. We offer a dorm for the volunteers and private accommodation for some of the crew, from Saturday to Saturday. We will give priority to those who travel the furthest and charge a fee of NOK 1000 per person to cover the cost of rent and other expenses. Often we are not able to sort out who stays where until close to the event.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate non-practitioners. We recommend people to check out places like airbnb, CouchSurfing, Short Stay Apartments, and Ekeberg or Bogstad Camping. If you want to stay in a hotel, check out Anker Hotel. Feel free to use the Oslo SusCon 2019 event page or the Oslo SusCon 2019 Participants group on facebook to share information and hook up with potential roommates.
If you get a place in the dorm, please bring a towel and sleeping bag. For other accommodations, please bring a towel and covers for duvet and pillow if you can, we will provide sheets for everyone (we do have some extra covers and towels for you to use if you cannot bring your own). Please also wear a t-shirt on the night after your suspension, so you don’t get blood on your host’s bed.
