After a four-year hiatus, Bristol's world-famous St. Paul's Carnival is making a comeback this year and is set to be bigger and better than ever before. Expected to attract up to 100,000 visitors, the one-day event will showcase the best of Bristol's Afro-Caribbean culture as well as celebrating the city's vibrancy and diversity. But how do you warm up for such a big party? The answer, of course - another big party!

This week's Afrobeats Fridays party is the perfect warmup for St Paul's Carnival.

Afrobeats Fridays are back with their usual weekly event on the eve of the carnival, but with Saturday's festivities on the horizon, the team behind the beloved parties have cooked up an extra special celebration to get you in the mood. 


Held at Forty Eight Club on Park Street, Afrobeats Fridays is a brand inspired by the new wave of afrobeat music that's taking over the nightlife scene in London and other major UK cities at present, Bristol included. They aim to provide partygoers and world music fans from all walks of life with the best DJs from Bristol and beyond spinning the latest urban and afrobeat tracks from all parts of Africa, transcending countless subgenres like Africa Naija Afrobeats, Azonto, Decale, West African Dancehall, SA House, Kuduro, Afro House and much more!


Behind the decks on the night will be none other than Afrobeats Fridays residents DJ Wally and DJ Neyo, sure to put together a night that you and your mates will never forget!


If you just can't wait for the weekend, then why not check out Afrobeats Fridays' very own DJ Neyo's exclusive Summer 2018 mix here and jam your way through those long office weekdays.
