HDD & Friends : Favourite Notting Hill Carnival Soundsystems

HDD carnival soundsystems

Over the years we have asked some of our favourite djs, producers and carnival goers to share their Notting Hill Carnival tips with us. Here are some tips from HDD friends and family on the best sound systems to visit (now updated for 2018). Check Time Out London’s soundsystem map to help you find your way.  Plus this year the official organisers of Notting Hill Carnival have an app and loads of useful info on their website.

A minute’s silence will be help at 3pm on Sunday 26th and Monday 27th to honour the victims of the Grenfell fire.

Hipsters Don’t Dance
Nasty Love on Colville Gardens, Volcano on All  Saints Road, GT Flex/Mayhem Crew on Middle Row/Conlan St, Nigerian Corner on Adela Street (this one is on carnival Monday only),  Toddla T and SSP Sound system on Alderson Street are some of our carnival favourites, but this year look out for Hoodcelebrityy, Alicai Harley, Maleek Berry and loads more at the RBMA stage at Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance Park on Sunday and for the soca fans Mangrove will be running road with Iwer George, Patrice Roberts, Voice and more.
