For those not off to the fields of Berkshire or Yorkshire this weekend for Reading & Leeds, there’s an altogether different musical gathering to get your dancing shoes on for - the Notting Hill Carnival.
Seminal party-starters Rinse are celebrating their 20th anniversary this weekend too, and are celebrating this with their first appearance at the Carnival - with a headline set from Katy B.
And, fitting in with the whole theme of it all, Katy has shared a track that doesn’t feature on this year’s smash of an album, ‘Little Red’ - ‘Little Red Light’.
Rinse’s Notting Hill Carnival party also features sets from Chase & Status, Ms. Dynamite, Sinead Harnett, Skream, Jess Glynne and more.
Katy B tours the UK this October.
