múm, The Raveonettes and Truls on bill for two-dayer next month

Now into its fourth year, London's finest Nordic music festival Ja Ja Ja is set for its first festival, taking place on November 8-9 at the Roundhouse.

Lining up on the main stage will be Mew, The Raveonettes, múm, NONONO, Husky Rescue, LCMDF, Truls and Annie (DJ set), while there'll also be a bill of new acts on the second stage, including Sin Fang, Rangleklods, Einar Stray, Postiljonen, I Was A Teenage Satan Worshipper, Black Lizard, Kid Astray, Here Is Your Temple, Broke and Mammút.

In addition, there'll be screenings of Nordic music documentaries, a label market, art exhibits and “Nordic Sound Bite”, which "promises the ultimate collaboration between music and food", a union the Quietus has tirelessly striven for.
