Not sure where the soundsystems we have recommended over the last few years will be? The map below will help you find your way. Thanks to the London Notting Hill Carnival for this year’s carnival map, check out their website for more carnival info.

Unfortunately Notting Hill Carnival favourites Good Times, Rampage, Sancho Panza won’t be taking part this year but we highly recommend checking out Nasty Love, Glady Wax, Volcano, The Heatwave at Different Strokes on Sunday, and Nigerian Corner and Toddla T’s takeover of SSP Soundsystem on Monday. There are more than enough soundsystems to check out so go explore and if you want to hear the best soca follow the trucks for a bit!
