X Games Norway 2020: Music Schedule

X Games

X Games Norway 2020 features musical performances by Musti, Chris Abolade, Arif and Alan Walker. For descriptions, schedule and tickets, see below.

Musti: Sat., March 7, 4:15 p.m. CEST
If Nora Collective-protege Kapteinen is the introverted outcast of the pack, nerding production techniques at home - well, let's just say that 18-year old rapper Musti is the direct opposite, offering über-confident bars backed up by powerhouse beats.

Ugbad Musti grew up here and there: some years in London and some years at Tøyen, Oslo's multicultural hub. She's been fascinated by the art of storytelling her whole life. Starting out with English, she decided to switch over to her native Norwegian after a new wave of Scandinavian-language urban proved it possible: Arif, Silvana Imam, Gilli and Imenella.

And that's when everything came together. A month after a mesmerized Øya chanted along to her tunes, Musti saw herself getting invited to literature panels to discuss her lyrics. The word of mouth must have had its impact, because Musti has arrived.

Still early in his music career, Chris has climbed the ladder and has positioned himself as «one to watch» and during X-games Lillehammer 2020 he is dropping the latest track «sex og blomster» made together with the award winning and multi platinum producer Kid Joki.

Arif: March 7, 6:15 p.m. CEST
Arif Salum, known by his stage name Arif and former Phil T. Rich, is a rapper from Oslo. Arif's journey in the music business has been of an inspiring and evolving nature. And that journey started when he released his first EP in 2012. Along with his band of creatives called "B.A.W.S.," he paved the way for those who were chasing the same dream - to make a living doing music and arts.

When Arif's debut album, «HighEnd/Asfalt», was about to be released by his own label and management Nora Collective, the expectations were sky-high, making the height of fall even bigger. But hours after the launch, things were on the rise to new heights. His fans and followers grew bigger per week, and the size of his venues grew with it.

Alan Walker: March 7, 8 p.m. CEST
You may identify him by his trademark mask and hoodie, yet behind the mysterious character is the Norwegian artist, DJ and producer Alan Walker. With more than 15 billion audio and video streams worldwide, and almost 40 million followers across social media, it is safe to say that Walker has already put a lasting imprint on the music scene since he first made his mark a few years ago.

Born in Northampton, England to a Norwegian mother and British father, Walker moved with his family to Bergen, Norway, at the age of two. Being a true post-millennial child, he grew up surrounded by technology and became fascinated by programming, gaming and graphic design. Inspired by EDM pioneers as well as his natural love for film scores, Walker quickly converged his inspiration and musical influences when he first started to experiment with music production.

 

Today, Alan Walker is one of the most in-demand and sought-after artists in the scene, and continuously one of the 100 most popular artists on Spotify. He has had an impressive run of more than 500 headliner and festival shows, including Coachella, Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Lollapalooza and more. But beyond the impressive accolades and staggering numbers, what makes Walker special is his ability to engage fans around the world with his creations. And with the entire world as his playground and the majority of his career still ahead of him, it's impossible to predict what the future holds for the young artist who has slowly become the voice of his generation.
