Our acclaimed carnival-style late night party Festa Brazil returns this month with a Global Grooves Weekender late night special featuring some of the best Brazilan beats and live samba including:

Global Star Sounds – ‘Brasil Set’
Dance, beats, grooves and swing from the corners and crevices of Brazil. Expect the unexpected, from the swamps of Recife, the beats of Bahia, blissed out Bossa, the sounds of the funky favelas, and the swing of Samba. Fusing folkloric/roots music with electronic dancefloor grooves they’ll get the party started and take it on big time until 3am.

Bloco Novo
This dynamic and exciting group of drummers, dancers and artists from Manchester are the real deal. Their vibrant and funky Afro-Latin beats have wowed audiences’ right across the U.K. Their epic performance will get you grooving with a full PA set and loads of surprises from amazing vocalists, electro/acoustic melody, DJs, drummers, and secret special guests.
