The topic on whether or not there could EVER be a Glastonbury type festival here in the UK dedicated solely to black music starts at mark [08.33] when DJ Chuckie asks if “there could ever be a black festival”, and then host Mim quickly jumps in and STRESSES the word “URBAN”.
Yeah…I see what you did there. Hahahahahaha.
Anyway check out the debate below.
Trust me when I say this… the powers that be will only green light an “URBAN” Glastonbury festival if the headliners are:
Professor Green, Devlin, English Frank, Mic Righteous, Jessie J, Rita Ora and Justin Timberlake with BBC 1xtra DJ Charlie Sloth spinning on the ones and twos.
If you are deemed a non threatening and “safe” act like Rizzle Kicks then you might be lucky enough to be awarded with a 30 minute set and then get the opportunity to watch the headliners from the wings.
Everyone else will be relegated to backing singer and hype man duties.
