The ultimate live and online destination for new Nordic music discovery, Ja Ja Ja is set to celebrate some big birthdays this year! Founded by the Nordic Music Export (NOMEX) in 2009, 2019 will mark the 10th anniversary of the Ja Ja Ja club nights in London, and 5 years since the Berlin edition was launched in 2014.
Since then, more than 250 artists have performed at Ja Ja Ja’s club nights and festivals, with over 100 shows taking place in London, Berlin, Brighton, Hamburg, Vienna, Tokyo, Salzburg, Graz and Budapest. More than 2,500 attendees came to Ja Ja Ja’s shows in 2018 alone, making the platform the premier destination for the music industry and the public alike to discover the best emerging Nordic music.
As 2019 gets underway, Ja Ja Ja will be hosting a series of special events in London, Berlin and beyond to highlight these landmark anniversaries, and we’re thrilled to be teaming up with Roskilde Festival to present a showcase of rising Nordic talent at this year’s SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas.
Roskilde Festival is the largest music and arts festival in Northern Europe, playing host to more than 100,000 attendees and well over 100 artists on an annual basis. Dating back to 1971, Roskilde Festival has grown to become an unmissable fixture in the festival calendar and presents a host of brand new Nordic artists alongside the world’s most prominent headliners, year in year out.
