Kate Boy from Sweden will play Ja Ja Ja’s favourite venue (obviously) The Lexington on Thursday 24 July before rushing out to the Secret Garden Party. If we are to believe the Stockholm based Swedish/Australian electro pop trio itself, we will be able to hear some new music at this pre-festival gig, so there’s no time to lose. Why wait any longer than you have to?

Thurs 24th – Sun 27th July – Kate Boy, Little Dragon, , Say Lou Lou at Secret Garden Party, Huntingdon – Tickets


Just like summer weeks should, even this week will erupt in a big festival – The Secret Garden Party in Huntingdon, a couple of hours north of London. And as all festivals should be, this one is loaded with Nordic music! Kate Boy sticks around before leaving for Ireland, Denmark’s doesn’t seem to be finished with the UK just yet, and we can never get enough of Sweden’s Little Dragon. On top of that, Swedish/Australian sister duo Say Lou Lou will be presenting the dreamy pop.
