Get ready to rock at Grand Carnivale! Not only will there be authentic tastes and sips inspired by France, Italy, India, Germany and China, a street party and extravagant parade, this amazing event will be amplified with a weekend concert series. 

Performances take place at the Bandstand on International Street at 5:30 to 6:00 PM, 7:15 to 7:45 PM and 9:00 to 9:25 PM on Fridays and 5:30 to 6:00 PM, 7:15 to 7:45 PM, 9:00 to 9:25 PM and 10:25 to 10:50 PM on Saturdays.

Here’s the lineup:

June 15: Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution

  • A ten-piece gumbo of feel-good roots rock, old soul, Nawlins street sounds and secular gospel.

June 21-22: Mystic Bowie’s Talking Dreads

  • The brainchild of Jamaican born Mystic Bowie, who is best known as a vocalist of the Tom Tom Club. The Talking Dreads may be labeled a cover band but they are so much more with their unique spin on Talking Heads classics.

June 28-29: Swift Technique

  • Based out of Philadelphia, Swift Technique is a unique blend of funk, soul, rock, hip-hop and unwavering showmanship. Swift’s mission is to get you grooving, get you grinning and fill you with the positive energy that the world so sorely needs. 

July 5-6: Raffy

  • This musical quartet's infectious energy has been embraced across Canada through a live tour, appearances on television and radio airplay of their first hit single.

Grand Carnivale Weekend Concert Series performances are included with Kings Island admission.
