The ceremony takes place in Oslo Spektrum on Sunday 21 August at 3 pm.
Bereaved families, survivors and others directly affected by the attacks will be invited, along with rescuers, health workers and other contributors, as well as representatives from the official Norway.
We also remember the 15-year-old the Nigerian girl Modupe Ellen Awoyemi, who was killed in Utoya Norway. She was the daughter of the city council politician Lola Awoyemi. Described as a kind and open girl, who was active in AUF discussions.
The song "Never Would Have Made It" of Marvin Sap was also dedicated to remember the four young girls who lost their lives in the 1963 racist bombing attack in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963
Anders Behring Breivik has admitted killing 77 people last month when he first detonated a truck bomb outside government offices in Oslo, and then went on a meticulously planned shooting spree at a youth camp on the island of Utoya, some 25 miles (40 kilometres) away.
