Taking place after Sunday’s Notting Hill Carnival (24th August), XOYO continue the celebration with the Carnival Special. East London institution Your Mum’s House bring the party after hosting two massive sold out nights at the venue last year. Calling themselves ‘the kids your mother told you not to play with,’ the party is guaranteed to get messy as they cover house, garage and hip hop to get the bass blaring. Usually hosting their event at The Nest on a Thursday, YMH tells you to expect the unexpected as they declare that they’re not bringing the party – they are the party. The line-up includes Black Butter Record’s Woz, Stylo G, Syron, De$ignated, DJ Khalil, Kartel Brown and more.
If that’s not enough, then also joining them at the party will be much-loved brand American Apparel. The clothes company will not only be covering the night, but will also be handing out free giveaways. Yes, you read that correctly. XOYO is fast becoming one of London’s best venues to party with their credible line ups and relentless impressive weekends, and this night looks to be no exception.
Covering two floors and utilizing their expertly tuned sound system, the carnival after party looks like it will be one to remember. Just remember to thank us later.
