The Ja Ja Ja Festival is just weeks away, and we’ve got more exciting additions to share with you!
First of all, we’re extremely proud to announce the addition of an extra special screening of Bjork: Biophilia Live to the upcoming Ja Ja Ja Festival in November, which promises to bring the best in Nordic music, food and film to London for a second year in a row (and we might mention here that it just so happens to be our fifth birthday party too!)
This year, the event will be running across two venues, with extended editions of the Ja Ja Ja clubs night at The Lexington running on November 13th and 14th, ahead of a special all-day performance at Queen Mary University’s historic Great Hall on Saturday 15th November, headlined by Iceland’s incredible Emilíana Torrini.
Alongside some of the most exciting acts from the region including When Saints Go Machine, Jenny Wilson and Highasakite, you can also expect mouth-watering cuisine from award-winning chef Antto Melasniemi and innovative presentations from the Nordic Music Video Awards, alongside the screening of ‘Bjork: Biophilia Live’ at the Great Hall.
Artists playing The Lexington include some of our absolute favourite new artists here at Ja Ja Ja, such as Thursday and Friday night headliners Danish electro popstar Asbjørn and Norwegian crossover band Rytmeklubben. You can also enjoy sets at The Lexington from One Little Indian signees Fufanu, Norwegian electronic pop artist Nils Bech, Danish dream poppers Blaue Blume, Swedish starlet Sumie, Finnish krautrockers Death Hawks, Asgeir’s favourite atmospheric Icelandic act Low Roar and Finnish rapper Noah Kin.
