Lil Yachty
OBOS Big Air Arena, May 19th

Lil Yachty, aka Lil Boat, aka “King of the Teens” is a 19-year old Atlanta native, a Grammy-nominated singer, rapper, producer, creative designer, branding genius and fashion icon.

Yachty was on the cover of Paper and FADER magazines, as well as landing the cover of The New York Times Men’s Style section and XXL Freshman cover. Rolling Stone says his album ‘Teenage Emotions’ is a “landmark moment that may change the way people rap,” while The New York Times Magazine dubbed him as an artist “that tell us where music is going.”

Since releasing his viral video for “One Night” in December 2015, Lil Yachty has been releasing music at an almost unbelievable pace: Following his initial Summer Songs EP, he dropped three more EPS in addition to the two acclaimed mixtapes—Lil Boat and Summer Songs 2—in less than a year. Teenage Emotions was released in May 2017 and hit at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and #4 on the Billboard Hip Hop/R&B Chart. And as the title indicates, the set is a reflection of young lives right now, from social media-saturated heartbreak to self-acceptance to the dance floor, caught in a sound that effortlessly, constantly bounces from rap to pop to something entirely its own.

On Saturday, May 19th come see him on the main stage at OBOS Big Air Arena.

On Saturday, May 19th come see them on the main stage at OBOS Big Air Arena.

DAGNY
OBOS Big Air Arena, May 19th

Hailing from Tromsø in the far north of Norway, Dagny’s music has a quirky, endearing pop sound infused with a huge dose of contagious youthful optimism. The daughter of two Jazz musicians, she has consistently impressed ever since her breakthrough debut single ‘Backbeat‘ towards the end of 2015.

After a high-profile Beats 1 premiere by tastemaker Zane Lowe, ‘Backbeat‘ transformed into a veritable smash, racking up a staggering 33 million Spotify streams. Apple, Spotify, and Tidal all pegged her as an “Artist To Watch”.

Dagny’s story is just beginning to unfold. With 2018 headline tours planned in the US, Europe & Scandinavia and more music on the horizon, she’s got a big year ahead.

On Saturday, May 19th come see her on the main stage at OBOS Big Air Arena.

Chris Abolade
OBOS Big Air Arena, May 19th

Chris Abolade, aka ABBO, was no stranger to the spotlight and the high life when he released his debut single Mandag (Monday) last year on Friday 13th.   His experiences as an athlete, photographer, and videographer took him not just around the world but also took him in to close contact with this generation of stars from the stage, screen, sports arena, and social media.

Chris Abolade is part of the creative collective BROSLO. Broslo is deeply connected with X Games Norway through design, art exhibition, party extravaganza and music advise.

His most recent release Tranquilo, certified gold in his native Norway and still going strong, is ostensibly a love song but with lyrics inspired by the pressure of expectation he sees, feels, and even puts upon himself. “You can work hard at anything but at some point you just have to let things happen of their own accord. The body and brain can be pushed, but the heart cannot.” 

On Saturday, May 19th come see him on the main stage at OBOS Big Air Arena.

DJ Herkules

DJ Herkules have created the sound of Norwegian action sports for decades, with heavy involvement in skateboarding, motocross, skiing and snowboarding. As one of the leading hip-hop DJs in Norway, as well as a semi-professional snowboarder, DJ Herkules is able to adapt his musical pursuits to action sports contests far and wide, inspiring fans and athletes to push the envelope.

Beginning in 2003, DJ Herkules served as the official DJ for The Arctic Challenge. And in the time since, DJ Herkules became one of the most prominent names at clubs, events, concerts and festivals, including live appearances with Warlocks, Diaz, Son of Light, Don Martin, Mad Con, Lars Vaular, Kenneth Engebregtsen and many more. When International hip-hop stars visit Norway, DJ Herkules is the favourite warm-up act for many.

And because of his longstanding partnership with Terje Haakonsen and crew, DJ Herkules became the obvious choice for turning tables at X Games Norway. With an ability to seamlessly cross musical genres and get athletes pumped, look for DJ Herkules to be providing the inspiration and push at X Games Norway 2018.

MYRA

With her whispering, effortless and playful style, Myra has established herself as a strong name in the Norwegian rap flora. It all started when she released her first song “Hold An” on SoundCloud, and influential members from NMG/G-huset in Bergen took her under their wings. That she was given the assignment to sing Bergen’s national anthem «Nystemten» before Cecilia Brækhus entered the ring at the Koengen tells a bit about how fast people have gotten their eyes up for young the 23-year- old. Myra has released critically acclaimed singles, like «Link Opp», «Ventet På Deg» og «Lever I Bassen». She also joined NRK P3’s release for the hip-hop documentary “Takin Ova” with other established, urban artists.
