History and Background
Ja Ja Ja has become one of the most respected showcase platforms in the UK and the night keeps going from strength to strength, delivering tangible results for a significant amount of the bands playing. Since its launch in 2009, the night has helped Nordic bands identify and secure international partners, garner media attention as well as growing their fan base. In its later years the Ja Ja Ja Online Magazine was born and last year saw the birth of the Ja Ja Ja Festival at the prestigious Roundhouse in London.
We have regularly surveyed every professional team behind showcasing bands. One of the questions asked has been if we should look into establishing a similar concept in other countries than England. The answer is a solid YES. When asked what country, the overwhelming majority (90%) answered Germany.
The German Music Market
The German music market is widely considered the most important export market for Nordic exports. It is the 3rd largest recorded music market in the world and boosts a strong live sector. Nordic music already has a strong brand in the territory.
