27 August will see London's premiere grime collective throw the city's biggest party.
Fresh off an announcement that they'll be headlining one of Glastonbury's most iconic stages – the Other Stage – Boy Better Know have gone bigger and better. Always looking to represent for their home city of London, they'll be taking over its biggest and most iconic venue, the O2, for an entire day on Sunday 27 August.
The grime collective, whose members include Wiley, Skepta, JME and Jammer, will host a day featuring "a full day of music, film, gaming, sport, food and London lifestyle", that will see them take over the O2 complex's cinema, bars and restaurants, as well as its various music venues. In typical BBK form, it's a groundbreaking and unprecedented move that puts them ahead of the cultural curve, and as a celebration of both London and grime, it's both extremely apt and super innovative, mirroring the inventiveness and energy of the genre in itself.
They announced the event last night with a number of projections onto the O2:
It's definitely not an overstatement to say that this is going to be very special indeed, in line with the wise words of a man named Skepta: Greatness Only. Register for further information and an opportunity to sign up to the presale here.
