    The only thing I care about is any money the organisers received being paid back

    Good luck trying to find anything about that. You'd think with that big row of big sponsors at the bottom of the page, there'd be plenty of people asking questions, but it seems no one's bothered about being associated with what looks like two total flops in a row. Strange.

    doubt it was the big bucks if anything and any grant is probably lost in the LBL roundings, so FOI asks are pretty pointless. The 'sponsor' logos are just logos and don't indicate anything. Those in the brand dept at the various entities may like to know........

    Well, they've been listed as sponsors for two years running now. Usually organisations are quite particular about what they associate themselves with (assuming they're even aware that they're on Wave's promotional material).

    'listed as sponsors' ....... they wish. a logo was stuck at the bottom of a page (said logo probably scraped from a website).

    Well, again, brands and organisations are usually swift to clamp down on unauthorised usage. Maybe they did agree to something but it sure as hell ain't what they're getting :D

    The sponsors are not real. I know this.

    Lambeth MUST know about this though, no?

    Complaints after the non event this weekend will prompt action.

    For the record: Lambeth didn't provide any funding for the failed Wave in the past twelve months.

    What does that even mean?

    It means it’s a non-story and a waste of everyone’s time discussing. Wave was never going to happen, even the Council worked that out. Time to shut this thread down eh?

    Do we know if they paid back the 8k-ish the council gave wave last year?
    *Edit* Sorry, checked and wave invoiced for 8k and the expenditure was 'approved', was it paid? And refunded?

    Time for someone to reclaim Wave I think.

    If it's of no interest to you, there's no reason for you to keep on posting. From speaking to people around town, there's still plenty of interest in what exactly went on with Wave.

    It's OK. aka has declared it a 'non story' so he must have all the facts to hand. So tell us about what happened to the money, aka .

    So a major UK street festival that was shut down by the Council, who then switched support - and financial backing - to a rival street party that has gone AWOL for two years is a non-story?

    Yep. Lambeth Council shut Splash because it had turned in to an unmanageable shitshow. They had a brief dalliance with the Wave idiots but realised early that was bollocks, and here we are 2 years later.

    It was a story 18 months ago. It isn’t now.

    Splash will not return. Wave will not appear. £8k to flush out these choppers feels like a bargain.

    I may be wrong.

    You did see that the Wave website for 2018 had Lambeth as a partner?

    Nothing to see here.

    Aspirational Logo Syndrome

    Mostly trust and funds are bothered if you don’t put the logo up. They really don’t have a team doing the opposite.

    The ‘who wants to be a millionaire’ lawyers are on it if you borrow their stuff and Ministry of Sound are brutal. Wow betide the hairdresser borrowing ‘head candy’ or however that needs to be spelled.

    Ps. Fancy Funkin Chicken still has their WiFi up. Maybe someone should tell them.

    Righto. We'll stick the Lambeth logo up on Buzz and see how long that lasts.

    How so?

    Please explain why. How about if I put the logo on a Brixton Buzz club night to make it look like it was being backed and approved by the council?
