“The spirit of Carnival Collective summed up what Glastonbury does best”
Ian Burrell, The Independent.

Celebrating its 20th Anniversary, Carnival Collective has evolved into a genre bending live band that blows audiences away wherever it plays. With a line up that can swell from 18 to 30+ musicians, it delivers an irresistible tidal wave of energetic music. Sometimes described as a 21st Century Big Band, the CC sounds range from live drum and bass, reggae and jungle to cumbia and swing. CC’s repertoire has come from the musical passions of its members and most of the band’s songs are original compositions, played on a vast bateria of Brazilian drums, with a fat horn section and dirty bass-lines, topped with sharp lyrics and beautiful vocal harmonies. 2014, also marks the launch of ANOTHER THING, the band’s first studio album.
