About the event
For the third year running, Red Bull Music is setting up stall at Emslie Horniman's Pleasance Park in Notting Hill Carnival with a bill bringing together the best dancehall, bashment, rap and afrobeats from the UK and Caribbean.
Headlining the event is Spice – dancehall queen, Vybz Kartel collaborator and 2016 Red Bull Culture Clash winner (as part of Mixpak’s sound system). Bringing some South London flavour is Sneakbo, a pioneer of the current fusion between UK rap and afrobeats, while repping East London is afroswing pioneer Yxng Bane. British dancehall newcomer Alicai Harley teams up with Jamaican selector Tony Matterhorn to form Hot Shots After-Dark Sound System, while New York’s Ricky Blaze – producer of Gyptian’s Hold You – teams up with Reprazent Radio’s dancehall stalwart Lil C. Also on the bill is host of 1XTRA’s Rap Show Tiffany Calver, a new wave of UK dancehall artists (Sir DJ Corey, Br3nya, The Rara, Jodian Natty) and some very special guests.
Red Bull Sound System is free entry.
