Nordic Playlist celebrates 1st birthday in Oslo

By Tomas Lauvland Pettersen Posted: 20. Jan, 2015

Rising electronic stars Drippin, Bearson and Jerry Folk to perform this week at a special birthday party held in Oslo for Nordic music discovery platform, Nordic Playlist.

Wednesday January 21st is the day that the first pan-Nordic music platform will celebrate its first year of existence in collaboration with NRK P3 at Jaeger in Oslo.

Three very exciting, emerging Norwegian artists – Drippin, Bearson and Jerry Folk – will be providing the soundtrack to the night, each of them sought after names within Norway’s electronic music scene and with rapidly expanding reputations abroad.

– We’re thrilled to be celebrating the first anniversary of the Nordic Playlist in Oslo, with a special, one-off show featuring performances from three artists that we’re expecting great, great things from in 2015. At the Nordic Playlist, we place a special focus on quality emerging artists from the Nordic region, and Drippin, Bearson and Jerry Folk are three acts that are already creating a stir – not just in Norway, but internationally too, says Francine Gorman, editor of Nordic Playlist.

Since the Nordic Playlist kicked off one year ago, a number of well known Nordic artists such as First Aid Kit, Erlend Øye, Lykke Li and Mew have curated playlists consisting of their favourite songs from other Nordic artists.

– Nordic Playlist is the first pan-Nordic music platform, and this first year has been a fantastic journey where a number of amazing artists have contributed to the site. We see that this is interesting for both the public and media, and we are very thankful for the interest and support we get from media partners like P3, says Anna Hildur Hildibrandsdottir, Programme Manager of Nordic Playlist and Nordic Music Export.
