The List has a new face in our midst, and it’s Tina! Our new intern from BI, Tina will be working with us on sales and marketing for the next few months. She is from Molde, has got a super cute little dog called Simba. Yesterday she joined us at day one of Pstereo. We had to find her a waterproof hat because, despite being from Norway, she was not prepared for the weather.
A lot of people were unprepared, to be honest, but that didn’t seem to dampen anyone’s spirits. Magnums of wine helped matters surely, as did some excellent music from artists such as Cezinando and Sigrid.
Lil Pump was also on the main stage, but barely. The young star who turns 18 today, didn’t put in much of a show and was criticised in today’s media. The crowd didn’t seem to give two shakes of brolly though, and people were rocking in the mud throughout. Finally, Kraftwerk mesmerised the crowd with their 3D show.
Our pick of today’s line up is Brazilian heavyweights Sepultura. Should be a mosh. Check out Gåte after on the main stage too.
It’s that time of year again: summer coming to an end, the sun is shrivelling up, streets filling with students… all of which can only mean one thing. Pstereo is back.
Every year the same. Back to work, start thinking that this year’s summer fun is all over and then BANG! Up comes Pstereo and brings those summer vibes right back. The fine weather yesterday helped get day one off to a flyer. Time spent with good friends, music, food and drink. This is what August in Trondheim is all about.
My performance of the night: Kano. Perhaps not a household name, but in the Grime scene of the UK, and especially London, Kano is considered somewhat a legend. Regarded by many as one of the early influencers of the genre, Kane Brett Robinson (aka Kano) brought over 10 years of experience to stage. The crowd was a little hesitant at first but many loosened up during one of Kano’s most familiar tracks, P’s and Q’s. He ended his performance with getting down from the stage and doing an entire song as part of the crowd, Kano made sure he left an impression.
Pstereo (and Trondheim) are still getting used to Thursday night starts – for those of us due in the office on Friday morning it’s a game of stick or twist. If you can hear my raspy voice through these words, and feel my struggle at getting out of bed this morning, you’ll know I twisted. Looking forward to checking out the new Forte club concept tonight. See you at Pstereo later for more twisting :p
