We may only be in February, but Notting Hill Carnival 2019 is already in full swing. Band launch season has begun, with costume presentations set to occupy a lot of weekends between now and midsummer. Carnival this year will take place on the Bank Holiday weekend of Sunday 25 and Monday 26 August 2019.

It can be difficult sometimes to find information about band launches and the bands themselves, so we’ve created a list of upcoming launches. Our list will be updated as and when we receive new information, but if you’d like us to keep you informed there’s the option of signing up to our weekly e-newsletter by Clicking Here.

If you would like your band launch details added to our list please submit your details here events(@)socanews.com.
