HOK WUK – NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL WARMUP PARTY //
HOT WUK BRIGHTON has made it into the radio! Red Bull Studio’s “August Rave Radar”, a monthly selection of hand-picked clubnights from around the country, included LIFE’s summer installment of Carnival madness, Dancehall and Bashment vibes at HOT WUK – THE NOTTINGHILL CARNIVAL WARMUP PARTY!
It’s up there with the likes of Manchester’s Warehouse Project and the Green Man Festival in Wales, so we’re pretty chuffed!

On FRIDAY 19TH AUGUST, shimmy down to wind your batty on the seafront with huge vibes from the UK’s #1 Bashment outfit, THE HEATWAVE. Plus, UK Garage legend STICKY and RENEGADE YOUTH will be on the bill too! Don’t miss another high energy winding session of the best in Dancehall, Bashment, pure hype and pure energy. Huge tunes and quickfire mixing, girls brucking out and people banging on the ceiling for reloads – this, you can expect! Big riddims from JA to the UK! Get your air horns ready and hype out to Sticky’s “Triplets”, below…
We’re also rather excited about the NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL, so we thought it was only right to throw a bruck-out Brighton warmup party…
As a lot of you have probably been, you’ll know what a wicked weekend in London the carnival provides! Internationally known, it has a well-deserved reputation as one of the best street festivals in the world.
For those who don’t know, here’s a bit of background info, as stated on their website… “Held each August Bank Holiday since 1966, the Notting Hill Carnival is the largest festival celebration of its kind in Europe. Every year the streets of West London come alive, with the sounds and smells of Europe’s biggest street festival. Twenty miles of vibrant colourful costumes surround over 40 static sound systems, hundreds of Caribbean food stalls, (make sure you visit Mama’s Jerk Station, on the corner of Portobello Rd and Oxford Gardens) over 40,000 volunteers and over 1 million Notting Hill carnival revellers.”
The dates for this year’s Carnival are the 28th and 29th August – if you’ve never been, don’t put it off!
