Spice, Yxng Bane and Sneakbo will headline the Red Bull Sound System at this year’s Notting Hill Carnival. The stage, which will be set up in Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance Park on Sunday August 25, is free to watch and always a popular spot during the festivities in west London. Dancehall favourite Spice will top the bill, with Canning Town rapper Yxng Bane another big name set to appear.

Alicai Harley will team up with Jamaican selector Tony Matterhorn for a one-off performance of their Hotshots After Dark Sound System, while rapper Sneakbo and 1Xtra DJ Tiffany Calver are also on the line-up. Ricky Blaze, Lil C and Sir DJ Corey are among the other acts due to play as part of the sound system. The following day, Red Bull will team up with Mangrove to present the biggest truck on the Carnival parade route, delivering an international array of soca sounds — Nadia Batson, Farmer Nappy and Nailah Blackman top the bill.

Notting Hill Carnival will return to west London for its 53rd edition over the bank holiday weekend, with more than a million visitors expected to join the party.
