RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY STAGE
AT NOTTINGHAM CARIBBEAN CARNIVAL
SATURDAY 18TH AUGUST
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC (SUBJECT TO CAPACITY)
As the summer rolls in, prepare to hear those horns in the distance, bass reverberating far and wide, and the waft of jerk chicken in the air… it’s Carnival time! Red Bull Music Academy is excited to announce its debut at Nottingham Caribbean Carnival hosting a stage on Saturday 18th August.
A free event held at the Forest Recreation Ground since 1994, the two-day Carnival celebrates true island culture, combining live soca, samba and reggae music with Caribbean food and street dances. Red Bull Music Academy has assembled an epic line-up, giving hot new talent the opportunity to perform with their music legends together on one stage.
The line-up includes bass fusionist Redlight and Dread MC, carnival king Norman Jay MBE, Trojan Records boss Earl Gateshead, Doc Daneeka, Lunice, The Heatwave, plus Nottingham scene stalwarts The Elementz, RubberDub Spam Chop and Mimmplus another very special guest. The carnival will be followed by an official afterparty hosted by Detonate.
Fans can pick up on the action afterwards, whether there or not, with sets being available to stream via www.RBMAradio.com. To get into the mood, check out Major Lazer’s set from 2011’s Notting Hill party now.
