The West End Carnivale is back! Rudekat Records and Experience BTS team up with Scene magazine and 4ZzZ to bring to you another incredible selection of bands, selectas, circus freaks and masked marauders in Brisbane's biggest masquerade party ever!

About West End Carnivale

As well as promoting an amazing lineup of world music, West End Carnivale is all about promoting the local 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 a truely excellent West End Carnivale compilation CD 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 and a food and crafts markets.

West End Carnivale is all ages and under 12's are free!
