Rocanotherworld 2024 Mainstage Brings Deliric x Silent Strike, Coma, Jurjak, Sugar Free and Denorm

Deliric fueled his passion for hip-hop from an early age, being fascinated by the genre’s poetry and rhythms. Founder of Facem Records, the first independent hip-hop label in Romania and member of the band C.T.C., he became known for his sincerity and transparency expressed in his music. His collaboration with Silent Strike spawned landmark tracks such as “Ambrozie” (2011) that cemented their reputation in the music industry.

One of Romania’s most beloved alternative rock bands, Coma, takes the stage again at Rocanotherworld 2024. It was formed in the early 2000s, being composed of former members of the bands Daft Allison and Ska Burger. Their debut album, “Sleep”, released in 2001, was a notable success, earning them a nomination for Best Alternative Band at the 2002 Romanian Music Industry Awards. Over the years, Coma has supported numerous concerts in the country and participated in various important festivals. In 2024, the band reunited in its current formula, consisting of Cătălin Chelemen (vocals), Răzvan Albu (drums), Dan Costea (vocals, guitar), Sorin Petrescu (bass guitar), Răzvan Rădulescu (DJ Hefe – scratches , effects, keys) and Matei Tibacu-Blendea (guitar). The band has had the honor of opening concerts for many renowned international bands and artists, including Linkin Park, Korn, Deftones, and Iggy Pop.

Jurjak‘s music is a combination of blues, electro, rock and folk, shaping his own recognizable style from the first chords. New singles “Vorbe din popor”, “Doar în zori” and “Medusa” continue to express this, anticipating his fourth studio album. George Petroșel, known as Jurjak, is not only a talented musician, but also a director, visual artist and licensed in intellectual property law. Quickly, he became one of the most appreciated alternative artists in Romania. To date, he has released three albums “Lemon Blues” (2016), “Blues Berry” (2018), which includes the hit “Miner’s Anthem”, nominated for the Gopo awards for the soundtrack of the movie “Planeta Petrila”, and “Thieves of dreams” (2022).

Fără Zahăr is a band that combines music and humor, exploring various musical genres with comic and satirical lyrics. In their songs, the band combines the characteristics of hip-hop, (“Sandu”, “Lav-stori”), folk, (“D’la munte”, “O, cal premos”), Latin (“Stella”), punk rock (“The MF Song”, “Zob da club”) and metal (“Dunitru”, “Diesel”).

Denorm is a band from Chisinau that comes with an explosive mix of synthwave/retrowave and a healthy dose of metal. Their music has a strong emotional impact, taking listeners on a deep journey through the combination of reverberations and spacious sound, yet maintaining a touch of intimacy. The band was born in 2018 when Jin and Spaceman (Evgeny Bereckelea and Evgeny Oleinic) decided to make this project official after a previous musical collaboration. They brought Mark Perlov and Evgeny Berdea into the team, and soon released the first set of songs recorded live. Since then, Denorm has continued to perform live sessions, shows and release EPs.
