The West End Carnivale – West End, Brisbane on 15 May 2010

The West End Carnivale is back! Rudekat Records and Experience BTS bring to you another fantastic selection of world music, workshops, dee jays, and circus performers in Brisbane’s biggest masquerade party ever!

On May 15, 2010, The West End Carnivale will host over 50 acts featuring a mighty reggae and world music line up, at the fantastic riverside grounds of Souths Leagues club at Davies Park.

As well as bringing top international and national acts, West End Carnivale is all about promoting the excellent music and performing artists of Brisbane. Last year’s inaugural event was highly successful, drawing over 2000 patrons and performers and established the Carnivale as Brisbane’s most original new festival.

The Carnivale draws its inspiration from the Brazilian and Caribbean tradition and encourages all performers and patrons to mask up, or come in a costume. It’s tradition for Carnival goers to come in masked or costumed gangs – and this year the festival will offer group discounts for those who come and add to the colour. This year, Rio Rhythmics will return with their famed costumed dancers and percussion ensemble to form the nucleus of the Carnivale parade. They will be joined by fire dancers and roving performers to create what is undoubtedly the festival highlight.

The Carnivale will also feature an outside bar, food and craft markets and a workshop venue. West End Carnivale is all ages and under 12’s are free.
