Øya and MEN bring Razika and Young Dreams to London for two nights in February.

In late February, Øyafestivalen and Music Export Norway will bring the two Norwegian acts Young Dreams and Razika to London to perform two shows. In collaboration with Rough Trade, a vinyl single will also be released. The split-single is a part of a series which started with Lucy Swann and Team Me in connection with their London shows last year.

Music Export Norway and Øya have presented several Norwegian acts together before, both in London, Berlin, New York and Austin. After the Øya night in London last year, Team Me were offered several shows in the UK and gained the attention of British media and music industry.
