OPAAAAAAAAAA all you out there!
It`s a pleasure to finally invite you back again to one of Oslo longest living clubconcepts - Balkan Beat Party Oslo! It`s been four months since last time we passionately danced together and went for summer holidays and made new friends abroad.

The third band contributing on this tour, are the world`s coolest Finnish guys - Jaakko Laitinen & Väärä Raha , and they`re so amazingly stylish, funky and opaliscious and hardcore gypsyfans - that it is time to let them kick off our first BBP this season at John Dee!
