Pop Brixton and 7Suns present the third annual Mardi Gras Brixton!
Immerse yourself in an all-round New Orleans experience set in a mini French Quarter. Shine your shoes, grab your glad rags and come catch some beads! From daytime craft activities for kids and adults too, to an evening of live music, and a best dressed competition, there's lots to enjoy. You can tuck into delicious Louisiana themed food and beverages whilst checking out the busking stage, live art and even have your fortune told for free.
This year's Magical Mythological parade theme introduces the 7Suns' Krewe of Eros revelling at a sumptuous Dionysus wine festival. We won't get too carried away, but let's just say: Toga's welcome!
Like your trad & rag jazz? There'll be an authentic N'Awlins music vibe in the afternoon with the epic Dom Pipkin and The Iko's — The Soul of New Orleans in the UK once again getting the good times rolling! And swing song spinner DJ Lil' Koko returns to keep us jumpin' & jivin'!
Co-hosts 7Suns have arranged a non-stop lineup of stellar musical acts on the Pop Box stage, and in the evening they'll be bringing an Afro-Latin Jazz Rock world fusion vision where the powers of Carnival & Mardi Gras combine!
We're pumped to announce this year's headliners Dat Brass for some «brass licks, sax riffs, rap spits & hat hits» to make you move to the groove 'till you wear out your sneakers.
Come and enjoy the spirit of Louisiana in the heart of Brixton!
Full line up and schedule to be announced very soon.
