Ja Ja Ja Presents
On November 8 - 9, Roundhouse will play host to a major festival of Nordic music, film and food with the inaugural Ja Ja Ja Festival.

Headlined with rare UK appearances by Mew (their first London show in over 4 years) and Shout Out Louds, the two-day event welcomes festival-goers to sidestep the dark English winter and immerse themselves in Nordic cool.
Attendees on both days will watch some of the biggest and hottest new bands in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, savour cutting edge new Nordic cuisine, browse a Nordic record label market and experience stunning art exhibits from Örvar Smárason (múm) and Sindri Már Sigfússon (Sin Fang). Saturday attendees will also enjoy rarely-screened music documentaries curated by CPH:DOX - Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival.
The festival is an evolution of the much-loved monthly Ja Ja Ja club night, which, since 2009, has established itself as London’s premier destination for the very best new Nordic music.
Ja Ja Ja Festival has been developed in joint collaboration with the Roundhouse, and is supported by the Nordic Embassies in London and the Nordic Culture Fund.
