BACARDÍ RUM TO HOST STAGE AT NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL 2018

Aug 22 2018 BY bespokemag

Announces that CASA BACARDÍ will come to Notting Hill Carnival for the very first time this summer, as part of the rum brand’s Europe-wide music campaign ‘Do What Moves You’.

 

CASA BACARDÍ on the legendary Powis Square Stage will play host to an unmissable line-up of incredible acts, all specially selected to represent the ‘sound of rum’. BACARDÍ has worked with the local community on the programming and the full line up will be revealed on the day. Music will run from midday to 7pm and as is Carnival tradition, the event is not ticketed and entry will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

 

Traditionally, the Powis Square Stage has been the go-to place each year at Notting Hill Carnival to experience true, authentic Calypso music, which originated in Trinidad & Tobago in the early to mid-19th century. BACARDÍ will fund the normal programming on the Powis Square Stage on Sunday 26th August, and the calypsonians will also bring their Caribbean sounds to Monday’s CASA BACARDÍ line up from 12pm – 3pm.

 

Alongside a full day of music programming, there will be street food stalls and bars serving BACARDÍ rum drinks to complete the Carnival experience.
