UK NEWS: SOUND SYSTEM RAMPAGE AND DJ NORMAN JAY PULL OUT OF THE 2011 NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL

Popular sound system Rampage has announced that they will not be playing at the 2011 Notting Hill Carnival which takes place on the 28th and 29th August.

They issued the following statement via Facebook,

For the first time in 17 years of participating in the Notting Hill Carnival, Rampage will not be part of this year’s event. We always aim to improve the experience for the audience at all of our events. Unfortunately our exhaustive summer has meant that we have been unable to complete these improvements.The only place that Rampage can be seen this Bank Holiday Weekend in London is at Hidden in Vauxhall. We look forward to returning bigger and better next year for Carnival 2012!

I have also been told that DJ Norman Jay won’t be playing either which also comes as a shock.

I wonder if this is due to recent events (London riots). There is definitely an uneasiness surrounding this year’s carnival.

  1. hmm….. well thats their official words so i guess speculation is pointless…
    but most people doing the carnival are tired of the restrictions!!

  2. I havent been to Carnival for about 8 years due to the constant blocking of roads, they put up barriers so you couldnt follow the float, meaning you get stucj in the crowds. Just had enough, so do not attend an event which was very much part of yearly ritual!

  3. As sad as it is for the first time in all the years I’ve been a part of NHC Rampage aren’t on the lineup, but due to the trouble that comes after the procession has reached the end around the static sounds such as the Rampages (and back in the day around the Westwood) sounds this may hopefully reduce the amount of trouble.

    But we know troublemakers will still try and come regardless as that’s what they do.

  4. they’re not attending cos if they do and something happens they don’t want to be tagged it ‘blackballed’ (heh) afterwards

    I stopped going Carnival when I moved from the route. that was over 9 yrs ago. I don’t miss it. event has no meaning anymore imo
