Iceland’s singer-songwriter phenomenon Ásgeir just released a brand new single, and a long anticipated album arrives on February 7th. This is of course cause for celebration, which luckily for us comes in the shape of a UK tour – including shows from Glasgow to London. We at Ja Ja Ja simply can’t wait to hear Ásgeir’s third album and to see this brilliant artist live so check out the tour dates, book your tickets and have an amazing time!

13.02 – The Lexington
Having just about recovered from our 10th birthday celebrations back in November, we’re very excited to announce the first line-up to feature in Ja Ja Ja’s spring 2020 season!
We’ll be kicking things off in London on Thursday 13th February with a diverse line up, giving you the chance to meet the finest rock, electronic and pop propositions coming out of the Nordics right now.
Joining us will be Denmark’s Yung, a punk-infused, powerful live band who’ve conquered pretty much all the festivals in their native Denmark, releasing an album and multiple EPs along the way. Joining Yung will be Finnish electronic maestro Detalji, who performed for us in Berlin back in 2019. With intense, powerful beats and striking imagery, Detalji promises to bring pumping electronica to The Lexington, so make sure to pay close attention. Completing our line up is fresh Norwegian face Red Moon, who’s set to release brand new music just ahead of the show! Already tipped as one of the most exciting artists coming out of Norway this year, we’re thrilled to be hosting Red Moon’s first ever UK show.
