One of the world’s biggest festivals, Roskilde Festival,
has announced a new set of artists to perform this summer in Denmark. Among many young and promising acts, with only one single behind, the Norwegian newcomer MARATON
rocketed its way to the festival stages, and will have the pleasure to perform at Roskilde’s ‘Rising stage’
on July 3. This will be Maraton’s
live debut outside of Norway, and the band’s vocalist, Fredrik Bergersen Klemp, shared his excitement: “Shit! Are we really playing at Roskilde this year? This is a little boy`s dream coming true. Since the first time I heard about Roskilde, I was always fascinated of how cool that festival was. I always dreamt about going there. In 2013, my friends and I decided to go. It was the frigging best week of my life! I sat in the grass and dreamt about one time playing on any of the stages. Now the time has finally come🤘 Like in 2013, Roskilde. We’re coming for you! See you at Rising stage, July 3!”
MARATON is a new and intense act from Norway, mixing the realms of pop, rock, metal and prog – unbound by the iron chains of the progressive music genre. Their music presents an interesting, wonderful mix, surprisingly refreshing and catchy, and at the same time timeless – something to be enjoyed and absorbed through more than one listen. The band creates a style of music which combines the rhythmic heaviness from bands such as Mars Volta and Meshugga with the pop aesthetics of Muse. Check out their first single ‘Blood Music’!
