Bank Holiday Boogie

Notting Hill CarnivalThe August bank holiday is almost upon us and as usual it promises the busiest musical weekend of the year. The biggest crowd puller will be west London's Notting Hill Carnival (Sunday and Monday), offering up exotic floats, spiced-up food and a varied soundtrack courtesy of the hundreds of sound-systems strewn across Ladbroke Grove.

If dancing in the streets is not your bag, head on down to Clapham Common for a dose of techno at Saturday's South West Four, featuring Paul van Dyk, Pete Tong and Roger Sanchez. On Sunday the Common hosts Get Loaded with a line up of bands including The Streets, Dirty Pretty Things and Dizzee Rascal.

Elsewhere there's more treats for dance music lovers at the achingly hip, TDK's Cross Central in Kings Cross (Saturday and Sunday). While those wanting to escape the metropolis need only head a few junctions down the M4 to the Reading Festival (Friday to Sunday) where Razorlight, Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Smashing Pumpkins are the lead acts through the weekend.

Brought to life by legendary sitcom creator Marta Kauffman, this post-modern masterpiece of a sit-com is generally seen as the precursor to later TV smash hits such as 'Friends', 'Veronica's Closet' and 'Joey
