One of the capital's most sought after parties has been cancelled due to licence revocation by Peckham Council.
Krankbrother Roof Party, which was due to take place on the rooftop of Peckham's Bussey Building on Saturday 28th July with Tiger & Woods, Cozzy D and Krankbrothers on the line-up, is the first party to be told by the council that no more licences will be granted for rooftop events at the venue this summer.
An official statement from Krankbrother read as follows:
“We are very sorry to let you know that we have had to cancel our roof party this Saturday. The local council in Peckham has sadly rescinded the licence for the Bussey rooftop, meaning that no further events can take place there this summer. We have tried and tried to find a way of making the event work - we considered alternative venues, and even considered having an indoor event in the Bussey Building. In the end though, we have decided that the fairest thing is to refund every ticket holder in full. Our customers' satisfaction is paramount to us, and we didn't want to disappoint or anger people by putting on a mediocre party in replacement for the roof party. ??No one is more disappointed about this cancellation than us – we truly wanted to enjoy another great outdoor event this Saturday. We do hope that you understand our reasons for cancelling the event, and we very much hope to see you at one of our other upcoming events. ? Ticket holders: your full refund should hit your account in 4-5 working day.”
The party would have been the fourth of its kind, with previous events featuring Lee Foss, Heidi, Lee Curtiss, Wildkats and Tanner Ross since it started in 2011. Heralded for its sexy, care-free vibe and 360 panoramic views of London, its presence will be sorely missed this weekend, especially in light of the recent summer heatwave across Britain.
However, Krankbrother will be found at Eastern Electrics Festival (4th August), Groovefest (5th - 12th September) and Bugged Out! Weekender (18th - 20th January) over the coming months.
