Notting Hill Carnival
25 August

For the third year in a row, Red Bull Music set up their sound system Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance Park for Notting Hill Carnival.

This year’s line-up encompassed dancehall, basement, rap and afrobeats from the UK and the Caribbean.

Dancehall icon and 2016 Red Bull Culture Clash winner Spice headlined the event, with likes of Yxng Bane also performing. Fast-rising dancehall artist Alicai Harley joined forces with Jamaican musical legend Tony Matterhorn to form the Hot Shots After Dark Sound System while Sneakbo bought his pioneering fusion of UK rap and afrobeats to the stage.
