    What sound systems do you recomend people check out on Monday?

    First time going to the carnival, want to make sure we hit the best sound systems.

    Recomendations for food as well would be good?

    What time does it all wrap up?

    Or do sound systems pack up whenever they feel like it?

    most soundsystems shut about 7ish, maybe a little later but theres always pubs/bars for a little after party vibe

    They have raided and locked up known gangmembers etc in the last couple of days, those who were looking to war and rob people.....apparently this years gonna be the safest

    @Moskit - dunno whether you just like to make controversial statements but what you said could be said for London in general, they aint going nowhere - deal with it

    Channel one is alright. DSB tends to get rammed full of cunts later in the day, as does the drum and bass one. Avoid that at all costs. and avoid some of the other shit ones like gaz rocking blues. Words cannot express how shit that is. In fact, go walk past it, just you so you can see its shit in its entirety. It's truly a shit sight to behold.
    Rampage is fun for brief periods of time, but norman jays soundsystem is nice too

    Had a joke time walking through gazs last year. 500 plus people all stopped for a min cos some old man who lived opposite pulled down his window and was shouting and kicking off at the peeps. Then went back on louder and the old dude was a hero. not about the tunes though
