Jaga Jazzist back in Kongsberg, finally!
Jaga Jazzist celebrated 20 years as a band in 2014 and is today pretty much an institution in the Norwegian music scene. From the very start in 1994, the musician collective has flirted with different styles, whether it’s electronica, post-rock, shoegaze or jazz – or anything in between. Jaga Jazzist has steadily plowed up new musical fields, and has long been regarded as one of the most distinctive and innovative bands in the Norwegian music scene. One thing is for sure: There are few bands who can match the energy of Jaga Jazzist live!
There’s been a big demand to get Jaga Jazzist back at the festival, and we are very pleased to announce a spectacular club concert at Kongsberg Musikkteater!
