    I would add that Brixton BID were heavily involved in this debacle.A question is how much money Brixton BID put into this.

    Also that one of the reasons given for replacing Splash was that Splash had , in some people's view, become to big. That Wave would be more event based around local community. That didn't work out.

    Well it doesn't get any smaller than what's going to happen this weekend, so mission accomplished :thumbs:

    That was a mint year. It had a very local feel.

    I think it's worth pointing out that given the event was forced to cancel after '15 it was never going to be easy to get a big music day thing going again.

    There would've been so many pressures from police and council even with funding.

    There's been plenty of smaller, more community focused music events in Windrush Square since though. No consumerist app needed!

    Yes I agree, I was just pointing out that it was always going to be a struggle to have something like the big Splash event again. Anyway it seems BCA are doing their thing anyway in Windrush Sq so perhaps that'll fill the gap.

    Just noticed that the Buzz articles on this non-event was getting traffic from a Reddit post:
    Anyone got any idea who the "well known local musician" who "has an interest" in it taking place could be? :confused:

    talking about you i guess - includes complaint that Buzz replaces 'local media', whatever thats mean to be. SLP?

    I don't think I really fit the bill as "well known local musician," especially as a lot of people don't even know I play anything. It's not like I was trying to get my band to play.

    If they'd said 'DJ' maybe I might then have thought it was me, although 'well known' would be a stretch!

    the musician bit linked with moaning about negative media/ gales of indignation bit does suggest you, but i know what you mean. Blacker Dread would be the only other person that springs to my mind
