Perform with Carioca at the Coburg International Samba Festival 2017

With more than 3,000 sambistas and 200,000 spectators, it's the biggest Brazilian-style carnival in Europe and outside Brazil.

Carioca is very happy to have been invited to perform again this year! We will have a number of shows and take part of the great parade at the end of the festival.

We leave by bus from Copenhagen thursday afternoon July 13th, and arrive in Coburg friday morning. We return by bus from Coburg sunday afternoon July 16th and are back in Copenhagen early monday morning.

In Coburg we sleep in a sportshall together with a lot of other lovely sambistas. There are good toilet and bath facilities where we sleep.

The price is  DKK 1,200 if you go in the bus, or DKK 500 if you travel to/from Coburg on your own. The price includes all meals in Coburg and entry to the festival area.
