Liverpool will come alive with a dazzling array of music, dance and colour this summer as Britain’s biggest Brazilian-style carnival returns on Saturday 6 August.

The highlight of Brazilica Festival is the spectacular street carnival which winds its way through the city centre streets on Saturday evening, with plenty of photo opportunities (and bars and pubs!) on the route.

Performers taking part in this year’s Brazilica carnival include Liverpool Samba School, Batala Mersey, Katumba (Liverpool), Wirral Samba Drummers, Paraiso School of Samba (London), Karamba Samba (Chester), Manchester School of Samba, Sambafriq (Chorley), Worldwise Samba Drummers (Preston), Samba Espirito (Lancaster), and Beatndrum (Belfast).

The parade starts at 7.30pm at Abercromby Square (next to The Cambridge pub) and will then turn onto Oxford Street, past the Metropolitan Cathedral and along Hope Street to The Phil. From there, the carnival moves down Hardman Street, Leece Street, past the front of St Luke’s Church, Bold Street and then Church Street, finishing in Williamson Square.

The legendary Brazilica after-party will take place at District in the Baltic Triangle, showcasing some of the amazing performers from UK samba bands as well as Brazilica DJs playing house, samba and all things Latin.

The event runs from 10pm – 3am and tickets priced £6 are available now from Skiddle.
