Notting Hill Carnival Goes Virtual in 2020

In its 54-year-old history, the infamous Notting Hill Carnival has always gone ahead come rain or shine, which in the UK, is always a gamble where that’s concerned. But this year, the coronavirus pandemic has meant the carnival has had to find a new and creative way to run.

The organisers are keen to ensure the spirit of carnival is retained in some capacity, meaning they are launching a dedicated micrositeto host the celebration in partnership with Spotify, who are the official partners of this year’s carnival.

The site will host dedicated playlists and playlist takeovers by reggae artists such as Koffee, dancehall artist Spice, and The Marleys. The site hosts a number of “Channels” where people can register for an all access pass to attend the Main Stage, Sound Systems, the Parade and Culture channels. The Spotify Carnival Sounds will be available here.

Matthew Phillip, executive director of Notting Hill Carnival, said of the event, “Carnival is loved by so many young people, and that love will be even greater when they understand its legacy and cultural significance.”
