I am delighted to say that Banda71 are confirmed to play at the Kelburn Carnival Weekend, Largs in on 13th and 14th August 2011.

Overlooking the painted castle, painted by famous Brazilian graffiti artists Os Gemeos, Nunca and Nina. There will be carnival inspired food, drink and merriment. Line up including Banda71, Pirata Bossa, SambaYaBamba, Edinburgh Samba School, Balkan Beats, Brazilian Beats and loads more tba. I am damn sure it will be amazing!

Get tickets here (£32 inc camping!)

Bloco X, the pan-european samba bateria of which several of Banda71 are members are very excited to reveal that this year’s international gig will be at the incredible Sziget festival in Budapest.
