PoisonUK Carnival 2011 Launch

Our 2011 theme for Rotterdam and Notting Hill Carnivals is Pyromania. So you know that we're going to be on fire for the entire Summer 2011. Our fire trail takes us to Rotterdam on the weekend of July 29-31 and Notting Hill for Bank Holiday weekend August 28-29. Not to mention all of the amazing events that we will be hosting in between.

We're keeping it fresh 'Caribbean style' with our partners Sun Bailante to host the mother of all launches at the O2 Academy in Islington. Oh what a venue it is! Good location in The Angel, Central London, modern facilities, wicked sound system, massive stage, and balcony area, and staff who are friendly to the Caribbean scene.

(Bank Holiday) Sunday 1 May 2011 from 10pm - 5am

The DJ Line-up
The party is soooo special to us that we are wheeling in the big guns of the DJ scene. We are flying in DJ Spice all the way from New York City to give you his Soca magic potion. 1Xtra BBC's Dancehall King Robo Ranx will also give us a taste of his supreme sound. DJ Markee a PoisonUK institution will blow out with all the fresh new music out of the mecca, Trinidad Carnival. Zouk-ist (my word) Djahman will represent the French Caribbean music scene. Mr Sun Bailante himself will support the Hip Hop, and other urban sounds. This is a one love line-up.

Costume Presentation
But....the main attraction for the evening will be the unveiling of our beautiful costumes for Carnival 2011. You will be treated to a costume presentation not only by PoisonUK but also our close partners in wine n jam Dynasty, Morris Roots, New York based Carnival Hunters and Mas With Difference (MWD). So walk with your credit card, cheque book, cash or tonka beans to make your deposit for Rotterdam and Notting Hill carnivals.

As we always say, our costumes are open and available to every one. You don't need a university degree in Soca dancing or wining to the ground. You only need an open mind for crazy fun on a level that you have probably never experienced before. Call it the Caribbean's gift to the world!

Caribbean Festival
But that's not all! 2011 will see the first ever all weekend Caribbean festival to be held in London. Big tings ah come dey! our event management arm neXt Level along with its partners NHMBA and Carnival Village are beavering away to plan a Caribbean Festival that will host Carnival King and Queen costumes show, Caribbean Food, merchandise and to top it all off a loooong list of International Caribbean bands and superstars all weekend long. Oh, and when we say Caribbean we mean Caribbean! From Cuba to Trinidad (Guyana you too!) and everything in between. If I told you anything more at this point I would be spoiling the surprise. So, watch this space and watch this

Did someone say Wet Fete?? A whole new event for carnival weekend and more! We have other biggies to un-veil for 2011 but that's all that we will reveal for now, we know that your heart can't take it all at once.

Stay tuned by checking our Website, Facebook Fan page and Twitter sites for more information as we unveil the big picture.
Love Always,
The PoisonUK Team.
