YAM Carnival is a weekend celebration of the African diaspora, including Caribbean and Latin American culture, with music and food from across the world.

Set to be an exciting addition to the London’s festival circuit, there will be live music from the Afrobeat, reggaeton, contemporary RnB, hip hop, dancehall and world music genres.

In addition, attendees can expect Clapham Common to be transformed into a food lover’s paradise with Caribbean cuisine, Latin American staples and delicious American-inspired options from New Orleans, as well as plenty of Southern soul food to devour. The African food area will also be modelled after the iconic Nigerian danfo buses, with delicacies from across the continent to savour.

YAM Carnival attendees can also experience the unique masquerade culture including the traditional homage to ancestral spirits, featuring rich costumes, structures, masks and complex dance rituals from regions around the globe.
