A ‘secret grime rave’ is being held in London – but it’s only open to people who have registered to vote in the forthcoming general election.

The party will be thrown as part of the ‘#grime4corbyn’ campaign, which is backing the Labour leader to become the next Prime Minister.

Once you’ve registered to vote on the website, you can enter a ballot to win tickets for the secret bash.

#grime4corbyn told NME that they ‘hope to harness this energy to help elect a Labour prime Minister who will reduce the voting age to 16, cancel exorbitant university tuition fees, cancel zero-hours contracts, and through a new genuine living wage and building 500,000 council homes a year, give Britain’s young people the homes, jobs and education they need – for the many, not the few.’

Grime stars Stormzy, AJ Tracey, Novelist, Akala and JME have all voiced their support for Corbyn in the past weeks.

In fact, Corbyn met up with JME recently to talk about how to encourage young people to vote.

The musician revealed afterwards that Corbyn ‘explained why bare of us don’t vote’, while the Labour leader urged people to register ahead of the election on June 8.

Stay tuned for updates on whether Corbyn will be appearing as a guest MC at the rave.
