Line up - Thursday 11th August 6pm-9pm

Conjunto Sabroso
Led by percussion supremo Wilmer Sifonte from Venezuela, Conjunto Sabroso embraces the classic salsa line up of three-piece horn section, congas , timbale, hand percussion, piano, bass and two amazing vocalists who cover classics from legends such as Tito Puente, Celia Cruz and Ray Barreto. A real treat for Carnaby, this will be a session by one of Europe’s finest salsa big bands.

Sister Suzie and The Right Band
A five-piece band that will take the audience on a musical journey through Blues, Rhythm n Blues and Fifties Rock n’ Roll whilst nodding in the direction of Irma Thomas, Big Mama Thornton and Elmore James. These cats are a force to be reckoned with. Having regularly played the likes of Glastonbury, all across Europe and the US, this is a rare Carnaby performance for the band and is not to be missed.

Line up - Thursday 18th August 6pm-9pm

Salut Band

International award winning Funk, RnB and Soul show band, Salut will take to the stage with their seven piece line up featuring a singer, bass guitar, electric guitar, drums, keys, a saxophone and a trumpet. Having performed at festivals and supporting global superstars, Salut will keep visitors on their feet as they fill the streets of Carnaby with smash hits and floor fillers from across the ages.


A festival pop-up will offer free bookable activities including family friendly life-drawing, pottery painting, candle making and kokedama workshops, located at 5 Upper James Street. Places are limited and bookable at Carnaby.co.uk.

A range of interactive workshops will also take place including a makeup masterclass at Too Faced, a CBD masterclass at KLORIS and more to be announced soon.
