Julian Marley to headline the Six Towns One City Carnival

leave a comment »

Sticking true to it’s Caribbean roots, the Six Towns One City Carnival is ecstatic to confirm Julian Marley, son of reggae legend Bob Marley, as the headliner on the main stage.

The event at Hanley Park on August the 8th is set to see “Ju Ju” perform hits from his own current material as well as classic anthems originally performed by his father.

We’re expecting an amazing show, as this performance is one of many shows Julian is set to perform on his European tour.

The line up, that already consists of some of the best urban, R’n’B and reggae acts from across the region will not fail to entertain hardened fans and new comers alike.

For those of you who like their music more Knutsford than Kingston, then this years Carnival has introduced the Bowling Green Stage.

We couldn’t ignore the thriving music scene that dominates our area and organisers have been inundated with enquiries from Staffordshire talent. The Bowling Green Stage is being coordinated by Youth Explosion, who promise at least 10 bands made up of performers aged 18 and under.

With the event planned to run from 11 am to 8 am, we’re well on our way to ensuring there won’t be any dull moments.

Early June Update

Sadly, The Commitments Too will not be playing at this years event.

Despite stealing the show at last years event, the band are unavailable to perform in Hanley Park on 7th and 8th of August this year.

However, there is still plenty of time for you all you Stoke-on-Trent based business and performers to get involved.

We’re looking to top last years attendance of 16,000 people, so I think it’s fair to say that most businesses could generate an astounding amount of business with a potential audience of this size?

After an absolutely phenomenal response to our last post on our entertainment plans, we’ve had a few new developments for performers and attendees alike.

After a spirited meeting with Vince from Newcastle-under-Lyme’s iconic venue The Rigger, we have ad

ded yet another live music stage to the event. This new addition will take in the form of a performance area situated on the park’s bowling green, and will focus on young local talent from around our area.

In related news, The Commitments Too have been confirmed to play the main stage again this year after the astounding popularity of last year’s performance.

Don’t despair if you’re not quite an axe master or lack the ability to rock the mic, there will be ample opportunity to shake your stuff to the huge variety of artists on the line up.

For those of you who are more about banking than beats, we’ve confirmed the details for those of you who wish to do business at the event.

Local companies, Jumbo Skips and CBI Security have already decided to come on board and sponsor the event.

We are currently offering: space for your companies logos and banners that will form coverage across the site, stall spaces to sell your product or promote your company, as well as areas for catering vans or companies who have their own means of running their business at the carnival.

All business types will be considered.

Get in touch on the usual channels for more info.

Lastly, keep an ear out for an exclusive interview on Cross Rhythms radio this Thursday, where committee member, Richard Swancott will be on hand to keep you right up to date with any further developments, answer any of your questions and welcome your feedback.

After a refreshingly productive meeting with the Six Towns One City Carnival team, we have a handful of exciting developments for those of you that are as excited about this year’s event as we are.

With the most exciting news coming from Stoke-on-Trent council who have agreed for the carnival to go ahead for the next three years!

With this year’s carnival boasting even more events and attractions, we’re really going to have our work cut out next year trying to top the fun.

For those of you who have attended the carnival before, you’ll be aware of the strong live music element of the carnival.

Owing to sheer volume of Stoke based talent we’ve had to dedicate an entire stage for our home grown musicians.

Even though it’s not even May yet we’ve still got everything crossed in hopes of some good weather. The one thing we can guarantee is a nice cosy beer tent to keep your spirits up.

Please keep in touch with us. Remember it’s your carnival and we’re here to provide you with a fun filled weekend, and prove family memories for years to come.
