Red Bull music return to Notting Hill carnival for a Two-day celebration 

Red Bull Music returns to Notting Hill Carnival for the 10th year with its biggest programme of events to date, paying respect to Carnival’s rich heritage, prolific present and emerging future.

Along with hosting an open-to-all sound system on Sunday 26th August, Red Bull Music will be teaming up with Mangrove to mark the local mas band’s 40th year anniversary, bringing the biggest float on the carnival parade come Monday 27th! To get in the carnival spirit, Red Bull Music will also be hosting a series of free, pre-carnival workshops at Mangrove HQ on Monday 20th.

A line-up of dancehall, Afro Bashment and UK Afrobeats biggest names will descend onto Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance Park for the return of the Red Bull Music Sound System. While the day’s arena selling Jamaican headliner will have to stay top-secret until Friday 24th, the likes of leading UK afrobeats star Maleek Berry, Warning Crew’s First Lady Lisa Mercedez and Leicester-hailing dancehall rapper, Trillary Banks are all announced today.

Afro B and Team Salut will also make their sound system comeback, with their collaborative Afrowave Sound set, joined this year by their very own dance crew.
