Thousands Party Island Style At Sun Life Stadium

LAUDERHILL (CBSMiami) — Thousands of people are celebrating the lively spirit of Caribbean at a Carnival style bash at Sun Life Stadium.

In its fourth year, the Carnival features Calypso, Soca and island vibes throughout its colorful parades, costumes, theme parties and (of course) the music. There's plenty of interesting food to taste, too. Bring your patience, though: this year's carnival is expected to attract over 200,000 revelers from across the world.

For just $20 (in advance), carnival attendees will be treated to Mas band pageantry from the Parade of Bands, international Soca superstars, and Red Bull's Culture Clash, during which groups of DJs battle with tunes from around the world.

The Carnival kicked off Sunday with a tribute to the 50th anniversary of independence for Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago.

Live performances feature the sounds of King of Soca Machel Montano & the HD Band, the legendary Byron Lee's Dragonaires, Patrice Roberts and Farmer Nappy.

This year the Carnival is debuting the Red Bull Culture Clash featuring Black Chiney, Beauty & The Beats, Soulfrito, and Uncle Luke All-stars will spin the hottest genres in the Miami music scene: reggae, chutney, house, dubstep, soca, Latin and Miami bass.

Admission to Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash is included in your ticket to Miami Broward Carnival.
