When is St Pauls Carnival?
This year’s carnival takes places on Saturday 6th July 2013.
Location of stages and soundsystems
Once the carnival has started it becomes a lot harder to work out which sound systems are where! Stages and sound systems are scattered throughout the streets of St Pauls. The Google Map to the right shows the locations of each scheduled stage, these include the infamous PA systems and speaker stacks which the evening part of St Pauls Carnival is known for.
St Pauls Carnival Lineup & Set Times 2012
Below are set times for the djs and mcs for all of music stages and sound systems at Bristol’s 2012 carnival. While the main stages (rightly) focus on Caribbean music it’s foolish to consider St Pauls carnival as predominantly dub and reggae event. Programmed by sound system owners and local promoters, the lineups for the stages each bring different musical styles and artists to the 2012 event. From established drum & bass and dubstep djs to the cutting edge garage and house producers that Bristol is becoming known for, St Pauls carnival by night is a celebration of Bristol’s diverse music scene.
St Pauls Carnival After Party Locations
When the sound systems switch off around midnight, the party moves indoors with almost every venue in Bristol boasting some form of St Pauls carnival after party. After parties range from big club events in venues like Lakota, Basement 45, The Black Swan and Blue Mountain, to free-entry all-nighters in the pubs and bars around St Pauls and Stokes Croft. The event listings below outline all of the free and paid after parties for this years carnival.
