Sorry. What possible relevance has the status of their wi-fi to Brixton Wave?
Well it would have to be ironic!
Be sure to do screenshots and stuff.
You're jumping all over the place here. Why should anyone take screenshots? And what about the wi-fi?
Both are dead and yet strangely somehow alive. Schrödinger’s cat of a thread.
That really makes no sense at all. That Chicken place existed and has simply closed down, with the router left plugged in. Brixton Wave never existed, despite constantly claiming to be happening.
FFS. They're back again.
Twice-failed Brixton Wave announces 2019 festival with backing from Lambeth Council
If by some miracle it does take place, I predict it to be a very, very different offering to Brixton Splash with a big nu-Brixton sheen.
Fooled once and that's just life, fooled twice and you can say fair enough for giving them another go, third time you have to start wondering what Lambeth's ulterior motives are.
There's no ulterior motive.
LBL:"sure you can apply for licences and permission and stuff for a thing, fill in this here form"
Wave:"Cool - support!, must blog that"
Except Wave invoiced Lambeth nearly £9k for the first non-existing festival and claim to enjoy the council's "full support" for this third attempt.
Come to the November thing we can ask questions and that.
Forgive my lack of enthusiasm but after taking time out to post up information about their first two wastes of time, I'll leave it. The fact that they're holding it at the Dept Store makes me wonder if the grasping hands of Squire & Partners are going to be all over this (see: Brixton Design Trail).
Anyway, please report back!
Repetition. I say there is 'No Ulterior Motive'.
Show me the support from LBL for this one. It doesn't exist. Wave are bullshitting. (again).
It's stated very clearly in their event page:
And their material still contains some of the worst grammar and typographical errors I’ve seen in public.
‘With Lambeth granting us their complete support’. Sounds like they are desperate to prove a point.
Sounds like another amateur shitshow.
I think it will be an opportunistic attempt to bounce local business owners into supporting Wave. Probably just to secure match funding and still provide no event.
They could do with someone to check over their spolling...
Most crucially, will there be any free booze?
I bet the Brixton Brewery will be all over this if the 'festival' goes ahead.
There will be free nothing. Not for the people. Just free money for the parasites (thankfully incompetent beyond belief) who are pushing for this.
Still awaiting info on the accounts of Wave. I stress this as the sub ten grand they got from Lambeth Council might be small beer outweighed by match funding from elsewhere.
Sponsorship if they can restrict shops selling other brands?
Oh I wasn't assuming that they'd be giving away anything for free: I just think that there would be no end of nu-Brixton businesses lining up to get their branding slapped all over this if if gets presented in a suitably anodyne and 'iconic' manner.
I'd crash the 'launch' evening happily if there's free booze (and promptly fuck off when it runs out). It'd be like a council tax rebait, considering Ive technically paid towards their event funding.
I get you. Though this bunch of charlatans don't do actual work so their pitch to local business is based on their record and character.
I can see them nicking Brixton brewery logos on the back of a two minute conversation though.
Brixton Wave Ltd (Co No 07071661) appeared to have £730,654 in the bank as current assets Nov 2017
How the fuck can that even be possible?!!
No indication of where or how it just appears...
So Brixton Splash Ltd - with all their wads of cash - just morphed into Brixton Wave Ltd and took all the cash with them?
