I really hope this doesn't happen though, it seems fucking mad.
its not the acts that invite trouble makers along people will go and cause trouble at any place they like.
Grime gets a bad press from years and years ago because there was some trouble at raves involving gangs. Nothing like that has happened in grime for years now. It's not like its just a grime thing either clubs for years and years have had trouble with gangs and drurgs its the freakin night time with people partyin its bound to get those kinda people in.
I think this is the main issue. Police in London have been targeting any underground music scene with a predominantly black audience for years now. Why do you think there are no Grime raves in London? Police have systematically hounded and intimidated Grime promoters until there are now virtually none left. There's an excellent article on it in issue 2 of Woofah (http://www.woofahmag.com/).
but at least they can put them on as like house nights or something and you can always have house nights
Supa D is no longer able to play under that name as polic have noticed his huge popularity. He's often advertised as Super Secret DJ on flyers et cetera so the police don't know he's playing.
he is just playing funky house hehehe
or if this stuff comes thru then people like Supa D and that will just get there mate on the flyer and give the info to the police. Then just get on the decks lol
This form does nothing to stop murders in London. It is merely using the deaths of people as an excuse to be extremely racist.
Getting contact info, DOB, address for ALL musicians/artists performing ? Then send it off at least 2 weeks before the event....right. What happens if people get ill, or pull out and need to be replaced ?
Does this apply to orchestras/big bands as well ? Imagine filling in all the info for 100+ musicians. You would expect a handful of those to need to be replaced over a period of a few weeks.
In response, Detective Superintendent Dave Eyles from the Met's clubs and vice office told us that 10,000 such Risk Assessments would be processed this year. He said they weren't compulsory:
"We can't demand it - we recommend that you provide it as best practice. But you're bloody silly if you don't, because you're putting your venue at risk....
...I've never known an event to be cancelled because a Risk Assessment wasn't completed. If we went to the organisers and asked them to pull it, we would be laughed out of court. I cannot believe that would happen. In itself, it's not grounds to shut an event down."
