AURORA // Metteson

Aurora's only festival concert in Eastern Norway 2023 - is here, at Kirketorget! The pop comet Metteson takes the stage before her. You will get this with you!

Concert start: 20:00 Single ticket price: NOK 700

As the only festival in Eastern Norway in 2023, Norway's major international pop star, Aurora, headlines the Kongsberg Jazz Festival on Saturday 8 July. The pop comet Metteson will take the stage before her. What an evening this will be! Just get ready for big emotions, magical stage shows, dancing and sing-alongs.

Already at the age of 6, AURORA felt the need to sit by herself and create something. By the time she was twelve, she had written Runaway; a song that was later released, and thousands of miles away, inspired another twelve-year-old, Billie Eilish, to create her own music.
Vocalist, songwriter and producer: AURORA has proven to be a three-sided talent, as vocalist, songwriter and producer. Since bursting into the limelight in 2015 with her debut EP Running With The Wolves, she now has over 20 million monthly listeners on Spotify, amassed an incredible 2.6 billion streams of her songs, and sold over a million albums worldwide. She has performed at the Academy Awards, toured the world and been a musical guest on TV shows such as The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
This sounds like the future: unabashedly grand kaleidoscopic pop, writes The Guardian about Norway's next big pop star, Metteson.

Metteson, the heart child of the multi-artist Sverre Breivik, started his career by being singled out as debutant of the year by a collective Norwegian music industry, awarded this year's Stjerneskudd under by:Larm og bergta the whole country with performances of the single Under Your Shirt. He has since released the EP Convince Me and toured at home and abroad throughout 2022. Which ended in front of 6000 audiences in a packed Circus during the Island Festival in August.
