In June, Post Malone sets course for a green plain in the middle of Oslo – to create a party for 50,000 spectators during the one-day Oslo Summer Time festival.
– Post Malone is one of the most popular artists in the world. In addition, his live shows are spectacular and packed with hits. This will be Norway’s biggest concert this summer. He is known for getting the audience in his hollow hand with his slightly nerdy and charming appearance, says Mark Vaughan, responsible organizer of All Things Live, about the event on June 24.
The place is Voldsløkka in Oslo, where Oslo Sommert went off the rails for the first time in 2017 with Marcus & Martinus as headliners in front of 35,000 spectators, followed by Eminem in 2018 – with a record 55,000 spectators present. The 2020 edition starring Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar was canceled.
But in the summer of 2022, it is Post Malone who moves in – according to the press release with “an unparalleled stage show and a set list full of megahits”. The Norwegian big concert will be the start of his European tour.
