Jamaica Street Carnival Party
29/08 – 24 Kitchen St
As live music makes its long-awaited comeback, this August will see the celebration of the sorely missed Liverpool Carnival, set to fill 24 Kitchen Street with the best of bass, dancehall, old skool, rap and reggae. An outdoor stage, sound system vibes and a variety of food pop-ups will cater the all-day affair, supporting a diverse showcase of local and global Caribbean-influenced talent.
Organising and presenting the event are Culture Deck, a collaborative media platform who seek to celebrate and provide scope for emerging artists and creative talent. Founded in Liverpool, Culture Deck engage with local artists from across the North West, through both live events as well as projects in artist development and creative media. Girls on Deck is among one of their newest ventures, a project which aspires to nurture and celebrate the next generation of local female DJs.
Carnival headliners includes Jamaican reggae and dancehall singer KRANIUM, this year embarking on his first global tour after establishing his distinct reggae sound, heard in his collaborations with artists like Bebe Rexha and Wizkid. Joining the headliner is DAVID ‘RAM JAM’ RODIGAN, famous for his musical showcases, particularly in the reggae and dancehall genres, who was added to England’s Radio Academy Hall of Fame in 2006. Jamaican born and South London-raised ALICAI HARLEY, will take the event to new heights with party anthems from her new debut EP The Red Room Intro (Yard Gyal Inna Britain), a homage to both her young, female Black British and Jamaican heritage.
