Our goal is to list “everything” that is going on and make the Glimt Calendar a global general public utility, a open API based calendar accessed and used by many different sites and applications for many different purposes.
We aim to the THE source for event information.
Expect new uses, iPhone apps, Android apps.
Contact founder for partnership inquires, access to API’s etc.

Event data entry is done with a combination of automatic scripting, hired researchers in the Philippines and open public crowdsourcing where anyone can participate.

The Glimt team of contracted calendar researchers in the Philippines are working every day to add new events. 

You are encouraged to contribute, send new event information.

We are doing our home city of Oslo first, as a proof of concept. We will soon expand to take on the entire world, coming to where you live soon.

We are continuously working to improve the quality of the calendar.
However we recommend that you ALWAYS please double check with the original information from the event organizer, there is always a link on the event to the original source. We make no guarantees, and event information can change.

The project came about as founder Hans Jørgen Lysglimt Johansen simply wanted such a calendar for himself and started a simple online calendar, the team has since taken it from there to the current product and towards future improvements..

We greatly appreciate your help in promoting the Glimt Calendar, we need promotion to improve and expand the project to other cities.
