Who said Carnival was cancelled?

RnB/Hip Hop | Friday 20th August 2021 |

Bringing together an unrivalled celebration of Black culture from around the world, Yam Carnival will make its long-awaited debut this summer - taking over London’s Clapham Common on Saturday 28th August for the definitive summer party impossible to resist.

Across three stages, the biggest sounds in Afrobeats, hip-hop, reggae, Afro-swing, R&B and Afrotronics will come together for a defining cultural moment in the heart of London. Connecting black culture from all corners of the globe to celebrate together, it's an essential new festival for London and beyond.

Yam will be hosting top African influenced food trucks and chefs from across London, expect everything from contemporary and cutting edge cuisine to traditional home comforts, in the ultimate foodie paradise.

The Masquerade culture also comes to Yam Carnival, celebrating the practice of ancestral reverence and worships. Regarded as one of the strongest bonds of cultural commonality in Africa, the Masquerades bind the continent together in traditions of the past and a positive influence of the future. 



Due to some of the restrictive Covid measures that are in place, we now know that some of the international artists that had been booked to play are unable to come.
Ari Lennox, Culoe De Song, DJ LAG. Fally Ipupa & Femi Kuti will no longer be performing this year at Yam Carnival.
