Portobello Live is a festival on May Bank Holiday in and around Portobello Road Market and Notting Hill London. It is such a great vibe…..
I got to DJ in between Gypsy Fingers (who are Mike Oldfield of Tubular Bells fame Children) and Glen Matlock of the Sex Pistols – Rock and Roll…..
Its a established fixture in the festival calendar and returns to West London for the fourth year with its winning formula of music, spoken word, film, performance and art.
Held over Sunday and Monday of the May Day holiday, the festival again serves up maximum accessibility for minimum spend. A great line up of new and established bands and performers, rock royalty, superstar DJs (do they mean me????) and special guests will perform at Portobello’s iconic pubs, clubs and venues.
Acts included DJ and filmmaker Don Letts, ska and reggae legends Gaz Mayall and The Trojans, former Sex Pistol Glen Matlock, Youth (Killing Joke), Ben VP (Curiosity Killed The Cat), Leah Weller, Rotten Hill Gang, Richard Strange (Doctors of Madness), Tiny Magnetic Pets, My Drug Hell, Ted Key and the Kingstons (Housemartins) rapper/poet JC001, WHALLS, Bandante (the Bad Seeds) The Members, Steve Dior, Asheber and the Afrikan Revolution, the Ping Pong Bitches, Jim Jones and many more.
