It’s hard to put into words the pure energy of London’s Notting Hill Carnival, the most visual and vibrant celebration of the Caribbean culture in the UK. The Carnival is free and open to all and always takes place on the Sunday and Monday of the August bank-holiday weekend. It’s a spectacular procession featuring innumerable community groups, clubs and bands, all dressed in costume. Away from the procession, static sound systems scattered throughout Notting Hill broadcast diverse genres of music and accommodate performances. This is europe’s biggest street party which represent London’s multicultural past and present. The first time to be there for us was so intense. The decision came immediately. With the pictures we want to give the impression what we experienced at first sight when the crowd of the Carnival swallowed us.
