Time to unleash the carnival spirit for a full-on night of fantastic revelry at Le Grand Mardi Gras Ball. Embrace the spirit of New Orleans, add a touch of Venetian splendour and join in the spectacle that awaits.
Hastings Fat Tuesday Festival, the ultimate mid-winter carnival, has announced that Horse Meat Disco will headline the opulent Le Grand Mardi Gras Ball.
South London’s DJ collective started their disco shenanigans on New Year’s Day, 2004 at The Eagle, Vauxhall and over the 16 years since, their nightlife tenure has seen them become global disco ambassadors.
The Future Shape Of Sound are an up-to 10-piece Rock’n’Roll Crime-Gospel outfit, spear-headed by accomplished music producer Alex McGowan aka “Captain Future”. Visualise a bunch of Rock’n’Roll, blues musicians and gospel singers coming together to rock it out in a disused circus tent!
Opening the night will be Mr Wilson’s Second Liners- New Orleans meets 90s club classics…a rave funeral without the body. In New Orleans, funerals are celebrated in style, with noisy brass bands processing through the streets. The main section of the parade is known as First Line, but the real fun starts with the Second Line, those who follow the band to enjoy the music, marching with the musicians and twirling parasols or waving handkerchiefs.
Le Grand Mardi Gras Ball will once again prove to be an unmissable part of the Hastings music and social calendar.
