Essential London
Hackney Marshes, London
3-4 August


The Essential Festival hoped it could recover from the problems which plagued its Bristol show with a strong line-up for its event in the capital.

Morcheeba, DJ Shadow, Lamb and The Orb were lined up for the dance day, along with hip-hop legends Black Sheep and drum 'n' bass stars Roni Size and Goldie.

But with four weeks to go, the show was pulled - with organisers blaming poor ticket sales, as well as heavy rain and ground damage caused by July's London Mardi Gras event.
