Carnival, Bashment & Jaxx
As the Out-of-Offices start tumbling in, and the sounds of summer swell with the chorus of late night hedonism, the August bank holiday rolls ever nearer, and with it the promise of carnival. Red Bull Music Academy Sound System returns with its vibe-infused miscellany of stomach-crunching bass, cocktails and jerk delights.
Storming the headline slot – the frenetic, magnetic, rabble-rousing antics of UK house revolutionaries Basement Jaxx, dropping their new album the very same day. They’re joined by Jamaican reggae/dub cohorts Protoje & Yaadcore, trap-kings Tropkillaz, RBMA alumnus Kalbata & Mixmonster, first-generation dancehall MC Clapper Priest, soca-fuelled riddim fanatics Jus Now, feverous bashment crew The Heatwave, and sun-summoning, sonic powerhouse Mixpak Sound System.
Guestlist places will be free and available via ballot system, open 11th-15th August via redbull.co.uk/carnival
See you down the concrete Caribbean jungle.
