Red Bull Music at Notting Hill Carnival on Sunday 26 August 2018

Returning to Notting Hill Carnival for the 10th year with its biggest programme of events to date! Paying respect to Carnival’s rich heritage, prolific present and emerging future. 🎉🎤🔊

Along with hosting an open-to-all sound system on Sunday, Red Bull Music will be teaming up with Mangrove to mark the local mas band’s 40th year anniversary, bringing the biggest float on the carnival parade on bank holiday Monday!

A line-up of dancehall, afro bashment and UK afrobeats biggest names will descend onto Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance Park for the return of the Red Bull Music Sound System. The lineup includes likes of leading UK afrobeats star Maleek Berry, Warning Crew’s First Lady Lisa Mercedez and Leicester-hailing dancehall rapper, Trillary Banks. Afro B and Team Salut will also make their sound system comeback, with their collaborative Afrowave Sound set, joined this year by their very own dance crew.

Designed especially for this year’s parade, Red Bull Music will be partnering with Mangrove to bring their biggest (and loudest) ever float truck to the official carnival route the following day. Alongside hordes of Mangrove dancers, the float will also house performances from the likes of UK carnival mainstays, The Heatwave, Trinidad’s Patrice Rodgers and self-proclaimed ‘Prince of Soca’ Iwer Geroge.

For over forty years, following a career as an international model and actor, Rudi Patterson dedicated himself to painting. From the three successive council flats he lived in around Notting Hill he produced a vast body of work, exhibiting widely in London, the UK and internationally – from New York to Melbourne – throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s.

Following his death last year, this exhibition explores a single theme; Rudi’s extraordinarily potent and vivid representations of his native Jamaica. Including many works never previously exhibited, these depictions of montane landscapes, plantation villages, luxuriant tropical vegetation, rivers and beaches conjure a compelling sense of place, intuitively made from the vantage point of a west London window.

Opening Night: D.I.Z.N.I @ Graffik Gallery / Until Sunday June 3rd 2012


18:00 – 23:00

@ Graffik Gallery
284 Portobello Road,
W10 5TE

Entry: £FREE


What’s your favourite Disney movie? Well be it your a fan of The Little Mermaid, Lion King or Beauty and the Beast this exhibition will have a different take on your favourite cherished animated movies.

Once upon a time in the kingdom of Portobello there was a contemporary arts venue named “Graffik Gallery”. D.I.Z.N.I. will be trespassing from 17 May – 3 June.

When we think of children’s stories, two entirely different kinds of tale come to mind. Disney publishes beautiful tales with kind fairies who grant wishes and sprinkle fairy dust. These stories stem from the Victorian period, an era when the Grimm brothers’ tales were sanitised.

Tales by the Grimm brothers or Hans Christian Andersen where the storyline is dark, gruesome, a little bloodthirsty, and the fairies are naughty little bastards who might attempt to steal your children are more riveting. Graffik Gallery finds the latter so compelling that it has organised the DIZNI exhibition.

By showcasing coquettish and controversial painted cartoon characters popular images will be be stripped from the constraints of reality and their cultural significance, known for generations.

Artists involved:
Alec Monopoly, Ron English, Tee Wat, Speedy Graphito, Andy Seize, Jason Busk, Dotmaster, Dom Pattinson, Milo, Nuno Raminhos, Menghu Chen, Eyesaw, Gregory Siff, DDS, Inkfetish, Leeks, Carleen de Sozer, Dom Pattinson, Valery Pannetier, Matt Keeling, Redlock Graham Smith and Saskia Hahn.

RSVP for the after party being held at The Supper Club: art@graffikgallery.co.uk.

Its almost the weekend why wait till then.
