Additional events include the return to Brent of the prestigious MOBO Awards, marking their 25th anniversary, and the No Bass Like Home reggae project will see the borough's finest reggae and bass pioneers - including Don Letts and Janet Kay - take over Harlesden High Street to showcase the borough's musical prowess.
