Carnival Tour 2018!
Summer anthem Carnival released 20th July and new UK tour dates announced. Carnival, the new single from the Northwest’s premier urban & EDM collective, The Moods, will be mixed at the world-famous Metropolis Studios by Grammy award-winning producer Paul Norris. Paul has worked with major Top 10 artists including Alicia Keys, Gorillaz, Ed Sheeran and Kygo, and scooped a 2014 Grammy for his work with Rihanna on her album Unapologetic. Featuring Jamaican-born artist Tixxy Bang and a vivid mix of brass, drum & bass and bold lyrics, Carnival is the ultimate summer 2018 anthem. It celebrates the freedom of finishing work for the weekend, of festival life, unforgettable times with good friends & brilliant music. Carnival was made to be played live and this summer, it certainly will be... After a monumental 2017, The Moods are set for a massive festival season stretching from May right through to September. The party starts on 19th May on the BBC Introducing stage at Highest Point festival, Lancaster, which will be recorded live and broadcast on BBC radio. The Carnival tour is the fourth major UK for the Moods in eight months: Since last June, 20,000 people in 16 different venues across 12 towns and cities have been blown away by their immense live show. The Moods share the stage at Highest Point with an impressive roster of international acts including Hacienda Classical, Rae Morris and the Hospital Records DJs. Later in the summer, they open the main stage at Moovin Festival for legends De La Soul, Goldie and the Stereo MCs. The Moods also play the main stage at Audio Soup, and elsewhere headline two gigs: a slot at the huge Stramash venue for Edinburgh Fringe, as well as a London all-nighter at Nambucca for Camden Rocks. Add in performances at urban dance festivals Stampede and Sonderfest, supporting the likes of The Skints, Undercover Hippy and Jeramiah Ferrari, and it's easy to see why The Moods and their fans have plenty to look forward to this summer.
