  1. Stealing public spaces… | Revolting Pleb - April 22, 2014

    […] It would appear that Blackheath is now coming in for the same treatment – a chunk of it being appropriated for a ticket only festival. The event in question being On Blackheath – http://www.onblackheath.com/ – a combined music and food event in partnership with none other than John Lewis taking place over the weekend of 13th – 14th September. Ticket prices are detailed here – http://onblackheath.seetickets.com/event/onblackheath-2014/blackheath-common/785456 Basically, they don’t come cheap! Blackheath might be an affluent area but you only have to travel a few miles to find areas of deprivation in nearby Deptford and New Cross. So you have a foodie / music festival populated with smug hipsters who can afford £63.25 for a one day ticket to groove away to Massive Attack and sample a wide range of food (not included in the ticket price) while a couple of miles down the road there are households struggling to put food on the table and having to rely on food banks. Given the demographic of the people likely to be attending this hipster fest, it can be taken as read that the kids from the estates in New Cross and the like will not be welcome anywhere in the vicinity for reasons of ‘security’. In effect, they will be barred from using what us supposed to be public space over the weekend of September 13th – 14th. I don’t know about you, but to me, a hipster foodie / music festival such as On Blackheath seems to be one massive slap in the face to those not too far away who are struggling to get by from one day to the next. Suffice to say, plans are afoot to challenge this – http://anarchistmedia.wordpress.com/2014/04/16/off-blackheath-poster/ […]
