As summer heats up, prepare for things to get a little hotter as those horns blare in the distance, the bass reverberates far and wide, and the waft of jerk chicken fills the air… it’s Carnival time!

The Red Bull Music Academy 2013 Carnival Series arrives at the renowned Nottingham Carnival on Saturday 17th August. Having stopped at Bristol’s St Paul’s Carnival on Saturday 6th July, Nottingham and then London will complete the 2013 Carnival Series.

Spearheading the line-up is Ben Westbeech, aka Breach, bringing his futuristic suburban soul, fuzzy-edged funk, unpretentious pop and freshly-laced hip hop to the proceedings. Joining Breach will be brothers Channel One, who are celebrating over 30 years as one of the UK’s leading dub reggae sound systems, pushing their positive message of unity and strength, roots and culture through Rastafari.

Alongside these bass luminaries, Red Bull Music Academy Sound System welcomes 2013 Academy participant T. Williams, fresh from this year’s edition, which took place in New York in May. Coming at the carnival theme from several different angles, Williams takes fans on a bumpy journey through heavy house influenced by hip-hop, grime and UK Funky. Also joining fresh from this year’s Red Bull Music Academy is Throwing Snow, who, with his unique brand of subconscious club tracks, manages to borrow from bygone styles whilst at the same time remaining a vitally modern producer.

They’re all joined by Nottingham production outfit Elementz, smashing out some of the best hip-hop the UK has to offer, as well as roots and reggae masters Highness Sound System and scene stalwarts RubberDub and Mimm. Completing this year’s Nottingham bill is Congo Natty ft Congo Dubz, Nanci & Phoebe and Bristol duo Jus Now, who will be unleashing their spirited fusion of Trinidadian Soca rhythms with the sub heavy sound of the UK underground.

On top of the musical line-up, Red Bull Music Academy brings visual stimulation from Notts Property - showcasing live art from artists and crews from across the country alongside work from the city’s leading young designers hosted by Mimm.
