Ja Ja Ja Music is the definitive Nordic club night and website celebrating the very best music from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
Each month at The Lexington in London and FluxBau in Berlin, Ja Ja Ja hand-picks the finest emerging talent from the Nordic countries to perform at our club nights, making sure that only the best music is filtered through to your ears.
Alongside the nights, the Ja Ja Ja website brings you the latest news about up and coming music from the region on a daily basis, as well as presenting the Nordic Playlist. A constantly updated library of tailor-made playlists, the Nordic Playlist is available on Spotify and Apple Music, presenting playlists curated by the Nordic region’s most prominent artists and tastemakers including Lykke Li, Of Monsters & Men, Aurora, Trentemøller, LCMDF and many more.
Ja Ja Ja Music – A Nordic Affair
Since 2009, Ja Ja Ja has been bringing the best new Nordic music to London on a monthly basis, expanding to Berlin in 2014. During that time, more than 150 artists have travelled to the UK and Germany to perform at more than 70 Ja Ja Ja shows, including MØ, When Saints Go Machine, Highasakite, Niki and the Dove, Katzenjammer, Olof Arnalds and Jaakko Eino Kalevi.
In 2013, the first Ja Ja Ja Festival took place at Camden’s iconic Roundhouse venue to take the club night concept to a bigger, world-renowned stage. Over 2 days, the festival presented 20 artists from throughout the region – from a headline set from experimental Danes Mew, to performances from rising artists like Rangleklods, NONONO and Postiljonen.
In 2014, the festival returned to take place across The Lexington and Queen Elizabeth Hall in London over 3 days, bringing artists such as Emilíana Torrini, Jenny Wilson, Sin Cos Tan, Highasakite and more to the event’s stages.
Ja Ja Ja currently takes place in London and Berlin each month, and in Vienna and Tokyo on an annual basis.
The Nordic Playlist presents tailor-made playlists to help you to discover a huge range of music from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Åland and Greenland.
Hand-picked and tailor-made, the Nordic Playlist plays host to more than 150 playlists curated by some of the most influential musicians and tastemakers from the Nordic countries and beyond. Over 100 artists have taken the reins since the Nordic Playlist’s launch in January 2014, including Of Monsters & Men, Aurora, Zara Larsson, First Aid Kit, Teitur and Nive Nielsen who have each picked their favourite songs from each Nordic country, compiling them to create their very own Nordic Playlist.
The Nordic Playlist has also appeared at a number of live events, with pop up Radio Bars at Iceland Airwaves, by:Larm, Berlin Festival and Slush Music hosting live-streamed broadcasts from prominent radio DJs, live sessions and more, and residencies at Roskilde Festival producing more than 40 live sessions and interviews.
