The first ever Ja Ja Ja Festival is set to take place at the iconic Camden venue the Roundhouse on the 8th/9th November – a celebration of Nordic sounds, sights and tastes, an event which explores not just the music of the region, but the wider culture too.

We have a sensational musical line up in store, featuring some of the most sought after, inspiring talent to be found in the Nordic region, and Ja Ja Ja will also be joining forces with the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival to host screening of films such as Efterklang’s stunning The Ghost of Piramida, Finnish documentary The Punk Syndrome and the iconic Icelandic piece, Backyard, among many others.

More visual inspiration will be provided by múm’s Örvar Smárason and Sin Fang’s Sindri Már Sigfússon who will both be exhibiting their art throughout the event, and a range of innovative cuisines and food experiences will be offered during the festival in collaboration with New Nordic Food. These will include ‘Nordic Sound Bite’ – a concept that partners musicians with food artists to create the ultimate collaboration between music and cuisine, curated by Danish designer Nikolaj Danielsen, plus a menu designed by leading Swedish chef Herman Rasmuson. Not only that, but the Roundhouse will play host to a Nordic Fika!

And if you’d like some more music to accompany this all-round affair, we’re very excited to announce that we’re set to welcome a host of Nordic labels to the Roundhouse on Saturday 9th to take part in a special Nordic Label Market – curated by Bella Union‘s Simon Raymonde!
