Project Urban Cancelled...

This was scheduled to be the biggest Grime event this year and would have featured Tinchy Stryder, Ironik, Chipmunk, Skepta, Crazy Cousinz, Ghetts, Bashy, Logan Sama, Wretch 32, Scorcher and more.

I'll direct you towards this Guardian article by Dan Hancox from a few months ago, about the possibility that the police might be seeking to strangle the life out of live black music, and this Facebook group protesting the arbitrary cancellation of the show by the Met and the O2. They didn't see fit to consult nor inform the promoter of said event, who only found out about its cancellation via Facebook.

Right. That would definitely have happened if this were a Rock or Indie show.
