Det fællesnordiske klubkoncept i London præsenterer 18 nordiske navne på den legendariske klub The Roundhouse – heraf fire danske.

Siden 2009 har Ja Ja Ja-klubaftenen på The Lexington i London præsenteret de mest spændende nye up-and-coming navne fra Skandinavien. Og 8.-9. november kulminerer de seneste års success med et stor festivalsamarbejde mellem Ja Ja Ja og det legendariske London spillested The Roundhouse.

I alt præsenterer Ja Ja Ja Festivalen 18 nordiske acts fordelt på to scener over to dage. Blandt hovednavnene finder vi danske Mew og The Raveonettes udover bl.a. múm fra Island og Annie fra Norge. På den mindre “Ja Ja Ja Stage” præsenteres bl.a. danske Broke og Rangleklods.

BBC Radio 1´s Huw Stephens, som er stor fan af den skandinaviske scene, og som tidligere har kurateret en af Ja Ja Ja klubaftenerne, vil dj´e til efterfesten under festivalen.

Udgangspunktet for at udvide klubaftenen til en festival var ikke kun at præsentere den nordiske musikscene, men at præsentere den nordiske kultur i sin helhed. Udover selve koncerterne vil publikum således blive præsenteret for en bred vifte af nordiske musikfilm kurateret af CPH:DOX, et nordisk plademarked samt innovativt ny-nordiske køkken inkl. Nordic Sound Bite – et nyt koncept der lover det ultimative møde mellem musik og mad.

JaJaJa præsenteres af NOMEX (de fem nordiske musikeksport-kontorer samt ROSA – Dansk Rock Samråd).

Danske bands som er interesseret i at medvirke i fremtidige Ja Ja Ja-koncerter skal som vanligt henvende sig til MXD’s Lisa Marxen (lisa@mxd.dk)

* NOMEX blev startet på initiativ fra ROSA med støtte fra MXD. Ud over Ja Ja Ja bakker man op om Hokuo Music Night i Tokyo og den ROSAs samarbejdsprojekt med Días Nórdicos-festivalen i Spanien.
