Oya Festival 2016 lineup + Aiming For Enrike opening for Jaga Jazzist at LPR
Oslo, Norway’s Oya Festival happens August 9 – 13 and this year’s lineup includes M83, Massive Attack (will Tricky be there?), Foals, New Order, The Kils, PJ Harvey, Jame xx, Travis Scott, Mastadon, Savages, Julia Holter, Lush, Whitney, and loads more. Tickets are on sale and you can check out the full lineup below.
A lot of Norwegian acts play Oya too, obviously, like duo Aiming for Enrike who make skronky, mathy, hyperactive, jazzy instrumental rock. (A lot of adjectives, yes, but they defy pigeonholing.) You can check out a couple live videos and stream their new album Segway Nation below. Aiming for Enrike will be in NYC this month opening for fellow Norwegian band Jaga Jazzist at Le Poisson Rouge on July 28 with Arc Iris on the bill as well. Tickets are still available.
Jaga Jazzist are also playing the “No Bad Days” party with fellow Nords Todd Terje & the Olsens and Lindstrøm the next day (July 29) at 260 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. Tickets, which are free for Jukely members, are still available.
