Public Enemy will play London’s Notting Hill Carnival on August 30, according to a posting from Chuck D on Terrordome, part of the official PE website.
The Notting Hill Carnival – Europe’s biggest street party – regularly draws over a million visitors to the W11 area and features hip hop crews and reggae sound systems, as well as the more traditional Caribbean steel bands.
Radio 1 DJ Tim Westwood is also booked to play a set at the Carnival, though his live performances are in doubt for the immediate future after he was shot in the arm eight days ago.
On the same Terrordome newsletter – written before the shooting – Chuck D said of Westwood:
“I’ve known Tim for 13 years. A true hip hop legend in support and broadcast. He’s persevered thru all the hatas who’ve tested his sincerity.”
