Following on from our launch party last week, Ja Ja Ja Berlin will kick off with the official opening show on the 9th October at FluxBau!
On the second Thursday of each month, you’ll be able to find the finest new talent at Ja Ja Ja – hand-picked from the Nordic countries for your listening pleasure. To get things started, we’ve invited Sweden’s Naomi Pilgrim to perform, alongside Danish troupe Blaue Blume and Norway’s Alfred Hall, and before they head to Berlin to perform, we’re getting to know each of them a little better. We’re starting off with Naomi Pilgrim who invited us into her world for a day, heading to a writing sessions then a DJ gig, and taking photos along the way…
Tickets for the show are available now and cost €5 for members and €7 for non-members – so make sure to sign up as a Ja Ja Ja member (for free!) now to receive exclusive discounts to all of our events, as well as getting your hands on a Ja Ja Ja tote bag and offers and discounts on Nordic activities around the city!
