Time Out’s Notting Hill Carnival Guide 2011

The Notting Hill Carnival 2011, the county’s biggest street celebration of Caribbean music, dance and masquerade, takes place in west London over August bank holiday weekend (Sunday August 28 and Monday August 29).

A celebration of London’s diverse and multicultural past and present, Carnival is a vivid spectacle of floats, steel bands, uplifting beats, from reggae and dub to salsa and soca, rippling from wobbling speaker stacks, jerk chicken and fried plantain food stalls and much, much more.

But don’t go anywhere without reading Time Out’s comprehensive guide to its infamous, beglittered Mas parade, the soundsystems and the best warm-up and after-parties, as well as the invaluable Carnival information you’ll need to navigate your way around the streets and, most importantly, stay safe.
