The Encontro Street Band Festival: Opening Party

The Encontro Street Band Festival: Opening Party
The Encontro Street Band Festival gets underway in fittingly flamboyant style, with a spectacular programme of carnival bands! Falling somewhere between the coordinates of street party, cabaret-gig and full on carnival experience, the opening party will feature an enticing selection of festival acts – including newly-formed Reel Brass (Edinburgh): a street-brass-ceilidh like no other, with super-sized New Orleans vibes augmenting the riotous Scottish ceilidh experience! And the inimitable 50-piece Rhythms of the City (London): happily encompassing every style that should and shouldn't be attempted with Samba percussion, vocals & guitars!

Encontro favourite DJ Mikey will spin a discerning selection of global carnival tunes between acts and until close at 12.30am

No messing – this party is not to be missed…

Delivered in partnership with Glasgow UNESCO City of Music
