The Notting Hill Carnival Starter Kit
Thu 22 Aug
Get yourself Carnival ready at Camden Market
Heading over to West London for the bank holiday weekend? There’s no reason that the party can’t start in North London! We’ve picked out a few ways that you can kick things off at the Market.
Prepare yourself for Carnvial (and the end of summer) with Supa Dupa Fly’s Carnival warm up party at Solomons’ Yard. Sip on the juice while you dance to the best beats from the hottest London DJs around. Where better to spend the night before the biggest street party than looking over Regent’s Canal.
If you are looking to get the tunes pounding way before the sound systems of Notting Hill are fired up, raid Massive International for the best in Reggae, Soca and Dancehall: all the elements you’ll need to get the perfect Carnival sound on both vinyl and CD.
If it’s Carnival-gear you are after, it’s got to be bright, bold and fun, so where better look than the futuristic streetwear and neon colour palette of Cyberdog. With clothes for all genders, why play it safe when you can be holographic or dressed head-to-toe in neon blinding green or go the whole nine yards with a clashing, colourful ensemble that’ll make even the dancers jealous. Go on, we dare you.
