More info on LMHR Carnival

Two major acts have confirmed that will be performing at the upcoming Love Music Hate Racism Carnival in London.

Dundee rockers The View have said they will be performing a special early set on the LMHR stage of the event, which is set to take place in London's Victoria Park on April 27th.

What's more, MOBO-winning rapper Akala will grace the second headline slot of the Unite Stage.

Other major acts already confirmed for the Carnival include Hard-Fi, Roll Deep, Wiley, The Paddingtons, Skream & Benga and Patrick Wolf.

The first ever Rock Against Racism event look place in Victoria Park in 1978.

Organisers from this year's event explained: "A huge rally of 100,000 people marched the six miles from Trafalgar Square through London's East End - the heart of National Front territory - to a Rock Against Racism concert in Victoria Park.

"The concert and march spelled the beginning of the end for the NF in the face of a young and diverse mass movement."
