Welcome to Carnival
August Bank Holiday is approaching and it’s time for the most exciting party of the year! You guessed right, the Notting Hill Carnival, the largest Festival celebration of its kind in Europe.
Every year, during the August bank holiday weekend Notting Hill is wearing its party clothes and fills up with music, tasty food, live performances, parades, all kinds of people and lots and lots of fun. First started in 1966 with only 500 attendees, it now boosts over 2.5 million visitors during the 2 day festival.
It’s often a lot of fun to stumble upon sound systems for yourself but most Carnival veterans will recommend checking out the following:
- Gaz’s Rocking Blues
Best For: Live reggae, costumes
- Studio 1
Best For: Lovers reggae, food stalls
- Sir Lloyd
Best for: Rare reggae grooves, authentic sound system vibes
Best For: Freshest sounds, this year probably pure bassline n grime
- Aba Shanti
Best For: Dub, roots, conscious reggae, and dancing with eyes closed
- Sancho Panza
Best For: Ibiza sounds
Hope you will enjoy yourselves during this authentic national treasure coming to West London.
