Thursday is getting hotter and more varied. Now it is clear that one of this decade’s most exciting hip hop names is ready for Tøyenparken on August 8th!
EARL SWEATSHIRT released the fantastic album Some Rap Songs before the New Year. Now he is ready for Øya festival the same day as TAME IMPALA, SIGRID, MITSKI, POND and PROTOJE. In addition, the uncompromising duo SUSHI x KOBE comes to the Øya festival.
Having been involved in establishing Odd Future as one of the most important hip hop collectives of our time while still in his teens, EARL SWEATSHIRT has made himself as remarkable as a solo artist and producer. He has collaborated with his colleagues in Odd Future, Vince Staples, Action Bronson, Flying Lotus, Kendrick Lamar and others, and has contributed to flash shots as Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange album.
Towards the end of 2018, the album Some Rap Songs, which received fantastic reception, came. This is his third album, and Pitchfork, Spin and AV Club are just a few of those who thought this was one of the strongest releases in 2018. EARL SWEATSHIRT publishes the music on his own label Tan Cressida. Pitchfork believes that he is now in front of “a new sound and scene that blurs the line between avant-garde jazz and hip-hop”.
Look forward to experiencing one of the most exciting voices in modern hip hop at Øya Festival on Thursday 8th August
The duo SUSHI x KOBE was first known to the Øya audience as they were visiting during the Yoguttenes concert in 2014. Since then, they have become an established name in Norwegian hip hop and are known as one of the genre’s greatest live phenomena. Not only have the streaming figures been in the air, they are playing bigger and bigger concert arenas. In October 2018 they released the album Døden Lever Lengst, and this year they will spread the music from scenes throughout Norway. Be in place for their heavy mix of trap, energy and uncompromising hits at Tøyen Park in August.
