Recife Carnival 2015 – Info

Info for Recife’s Carnival 2015 is starting to come out, via @carnivalrecife & Diario de Pernambuco. Let’s take a look!

B7uSHfmIIAAzruK– The official start of Carnival Recife will be on February 13th, at 6PM, with a maracatu entourage leaving from Rua da Moeda in direction of Marco Zero.

– There will be more than 2,000 attractions…

– There will be 30 main zones/hubs, 4 zones for children, 24 community zones and 5 passageways for revelry/festivities…

– 98% of the large attractions will be composed of artists from Pernambuco…

– There will be more than 2k presentations in 63 Carnival zones…

– Master Spock and the Bola de Ouro Club will be the honored guests this year…

– Last, but not least, Recife Rock (@reciferock) seems to have info saying that just 2% of the artist-allocated money will go to the “98% of the Pernambuco artists”. I’ll be looking for this information in the meantime.
