Save Our Scene are having their big temper tantrum on the streets of London this coming Sunday. But things aren’t going to plan. The media aren’t exactly bending over backwards to report the story – and the hearts and minds campaign isn’t going all that well either.
Their own social media pages are currently being besieged by anti-vaxxers and the usual loonies who think organisers are sellouts. Why? Because they spoke to the police before the event to make sure that the fate of hundreds of thousands of pounds of equipment isn’t to provide impromptu parties at police stations across London. The sheer temerity of them, eh?
Elsewhere, the DJs who are appearing – apparently as part of phase 1 – aren’t doing much to spread the message either. Let’s see what they’ve been doing to promote the event on Twitter. List correct as of 8am this morning…

You’d almost think that being associated with an illegal rave wasn’t actually a good idea, wouldn’t you?
